When I Get Where I'm Going
by Dolly Parton



When I get where I'm goin
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
Run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what its like
To ride a drop of rain

[Chorus]
Yeah when I get where I'm goin there'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fears
Yeah when I get where I'm goin there'll be only happy tears

I'm gonna walk with my Grand Daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

[Chorus]
Yeah when I get where I'm goin there'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fears
Yeah when I get where I'm goin there'll be only happy tears

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do
