Lyrics

I’m too close to reaching my journeys end

Lord I’m too close, to turn back living in a world of sin

I wouldn’t take nothing, Lord for my journey now

You know I sure got to make it to heaven some how

I’m too close, too close to reaching my goal

Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, I said I’m too close, too close to saving my soul

You know I’m too close, to heaven to turn around, just can’t turn around. REPEAT

BASS and DRUM

Anyhow, anyhow, my lord.

Down at the cross oh lord you sure got around

You know that I’m on my way to heaven any how

Lord you may, you may shout, you may scorn

Scared alive, scared alive my name

You know that on my way, on my way, on my way, on my way

Sometimes burden, I’m on my way, I get so tired sometimes, I’m on my way

My road gets a rocky,

I’m on my way REAPET 7 TIMES

I wonder if you’re on your way, I wonder, are you on you’re way

I am on my way to heaven anyhow, anyhow.
