Goodby, World, Goodby [Live]

LYRICS:

I told all my troubles goodbye
Goodbye to each tear and each sigh
This world where I roam
Cannot be my home
I’m bound for that land in the sky

I walk and I talk with my Lord
I feast every day on His Word
Heaven is near and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, world, goodbye

Chorus
Now don’t you weep for me when I’m gone
‘Cause I won’t have to leave here alone
And when I hear that last trumpet sound
My feet won’t stay on the ground.
I’m gonna rise with a shout, gonna fly
I’m gonna ride with my Lord through the sky
Heaven is near and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, world, goodbye

I won’t have the blues anymore
When I step across to that shore
And I’ll never pine for I’ll leave behind
My heartaches and tears evermore

A day, maybe two, then goodbye
Tomorrow, I’ll rise up and fly
Heaven is near and I can’t stay here
Goodbye, world, goodbye

Just a little while to stay here
Just a little while to wait
Then I’ll say goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, world, goodbye
World, goodby
