I'll fly away

Appalachian

Some bright morning when this life is over,
I'll fly away,
To a home on God’s celestial shore,
I'll fly away.

I'll fly away, oh glory,
I'll fly away, in the morning,
When I die, hallelujah, by and by,
I'll fly away.


When the shadows of this life have gone,
Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly.

Oh how glad and happy when we meet,
No more cold iron shackles on my feet.

Just a few more weary days and then,
To a land where joys will never end.
