My Soul's Got Wings

Album: Sad Clowns & Hillbillies (2017)
  • Well I've got a house, way up in the sky
    Yes, I got a house, way up in the sky
    Life may be dreary, but I can still sing
    Fly up to heaven
    On my soul wings

    Well my soul Lord
    My soul's got wings
    My load is heavy
    But I can still sing
    Climb up my mountain
    Walk on my sea
    Fly up to heaven
    On my soul's wings

    Well I've got a house, way up in the sky
    Yes, I got a house, way up in the sky
    Life may be dreary, but I can still sing
    Fly up to heaven
    On my soul wings

    So full of joy now, don't know what to say
    Kneel at my bedside, each night to pray
    Sleep on my pillow, all night I dream
    Gonna fly up to heaven
    On my soul's wings

    Wake me up in the morning, way up in the sun
    Work for my Lord, 'til my work's done
    Night time I stop, to count my good deeds
    Fly up to heaven
    On my soul's wings

    Well I've got a house, way up in the sky
    Yes, I got a house, way up in the sky
    Life may be dreary, but I can still sing
    Fly up to heaven
    On my soul wings

    Fly up to heaven
    On my soul wings

    Fly up to heaven
    On my soul wings Writer/s: Woody Guthrie
