BRAD PAISLEY


When I Get Where I'm Going Lyrics

(feat. Dolly Parton)

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

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

[Chorus]
Yeah when I get where I'm going
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 fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

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

[Repeat chorus]

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

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears

I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
dont cry for me down here

I lost my husband 18 yrs.ago and it's stillas if it were yesterday. I know he is with the Lord and I will join him one day. I don't want my family to grieve for me because I will be "Home", free .
I will be with all my loved ones who have gone before and will be reunited with those I leave behind one day.

This song embodies my Christian faith. I want it played at my funeral. I'm 54 years old, and live in Alabama and I'm a huge Brad fan. Especially love Waiting on a Woman.
