I Know Where I've Been Lyrics

miss maybelle
theres light in the darkness ohh the night is balck as my skin theres a light burning bright showing me the way but I know where i've been

theres a cry in the distance it's a voice that comes from deep within theres a cry asking why I pray the answers up ahead, yeah cuz I know where i've been

Theres a road we've been travelin lost so many on the way, but the riches will be plenty worth the price we had to pay

theres a dream in the future, theres a struggle we that we have yet to win, and theres pride in my heart cuz I know where i'm going yes I do!and I know where i've been yeah

Miss Maybelle + Ensemble
theres a road (theres a road)
we must travel (we must travel)
theres a promise (theres a promise)
we must make (that we must make)
but the riches (oh but the riches)
will be plenty (the riches will be plenty)
and the chances we must take ( the chances we must take)
theres a dream in the future

theres a struggle

that we have wet to win
use that pride
in our hearts
to lift us up
until tomorrow

cuz just to sit still would be a sin

I know it, I know it
I know where i'm going

Miss Maybelle
lord knows i know
where I've been

Miss Maybelle + Ensemble
oohh when we win
I'll give thanks to my god
cuz I know where i've been
