Justin Moore - If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away

JUSTIN MOORE


If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away Lyrics

Every day I drive to work across Flint River bridge
A hundred yards from the spot where me and grandpa
fished
There's a piece of his old fruit stand on the side of
Sawmill Road
He'd be there peelin' peaches if it was twenty years ago

And what I wouldn't give
To ride around in that old truck with him
If heaven wasn't so far away
I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa
Watch 'em laugh at the way he talks

I'd find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She's a doctor and he'd be proud

Then tell him we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view mirror we'd all watch 'em wave
Yeah, and losing them wouldn't be so hard to take
If heaven wasn't so far away
I'd hug all three of those girls we lost from the class of '99

And I'd find my bird dog Bo
and take him huntin' one more time
I'd ask Hank why he took those pills back in '53
And Janis to sing the second verse of "Me and Bobby McGee"
Sit on a cloud and visit for a while
It'd do me good just to see them smile

If heaven wasn't so far away
I'd pack up the kids and go for the day
Introduce them to their grandpa
Watch 'em laugh at the way he talks

I'd find my long lost cousin John
The one we left back in Vietnam
Show him a picture of his daughter now
She's a doctor and he'd be proud

Then tell him we'd be back in a couple of days
In the rear view mirror we'd all watch 'em wave
Yeah, and losing them wouldn't be so hard to take
If heaven wasn't so far
If heaven wasn't so far
If heaven wasn't so far away
So far away
So far away

I love this song!!! Everytime I hear it, if I am driving my truck somehow I end up out at my grandparents grave site. My Granny and my Papa were my life. They were the closest people to me in my life. I miss you both very much!!! Oh yeah, Granny my oldest boy is looking more and more like Papa.

If heaven wasn's so far away, I'd go and spend some time with my grandma that I miss so much and meet my lil sister and brother that past before I met them. I miss and love all my loved ones up there!

My dad is not doing good and me being the only one of his kids left that hasn't had any kids it hurts that he will never get to meet them. There is limited time left. This song makes me cry every time

Lost one great aunt who was like a grand mother or great grandmother to me end of last year she was 96. Her older sister passed 1-4-14. Never got to meet there older brother, who was my grandfather. Even though I never met him I love him more him more than anything in the world. One of my class mates lost a cousin at 3 days and I fell like she was my cousin too. Hope to see all of them when I am with God. ( I am 12)

This song brings tears to my eyes everytime I hear it. I so wish I could take my cousins ages 3 and 6 months to Heaven to visit their dad who was killed in Iraq in April. He loved those girls so much!
