Hey ho, hey ho [Repeats]
Oh, oh, gidyup 

All of these flowers
For this friend of ours, it's such a shame 
All of these people
All of them equally feel the same
There's silence and weeping  Looks like he's sleeping, the children say
They say he was ready, I hope he was ready 
Is the prayer I'm praying 

When Gabriel begins to blow
 Victory shall be mine
When the horses get ready to go
 Angels won't leave me behind 

[Chorus]
I'm gonna be, got to be ready 
When the chariot comes
(When the chariot, when the chariot comes)
I'm gonna be, got to be ready 
When the chariot comes

(Giddyup)
Over the prairie 
The pallbearers carry and lay him to rest
Satan's a cheater, Christ is the teacher 
And life's the test

Oh Lord, take me higher  Never liked fire, I can't stay here
I gotta get ready, gotta get ready 
Time has drawn near
When Gabriel begins to blow
 Victory shall be mine
When the horses get ready to go
The angels won't leave me behind 

[Chorus]

As I lay me down to sleep 
I pray my soul you keep
If I die before I wake
I pray my soul you'll take
'Cause I gotta be, gotta be ready, when Jesus comes
When that chariot comes
Got to be , got to be ready, when the chariot comes

[Repeats]
Said I've got to be, got to be ready 
When the chariot comes
