"I'll Fly Away"

Today is Friday, 13 April 2007.

For those who missed this in the "Comments" section on Wednesday:

Thanks for this to the incomparable "Earthboundmisfit". I know who you are, I know where you live, and it's never been you who are misfit, just most of Life.

We're trying to make something of ourselves.

Can't help but gild the lily, and Kurt is laughing at this if he can:

A classic of gospel bluegrass:


Some bright morning when this life is over
I'll fly away
To that 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
I'll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I'll fly
I'll fly away

Oh how glad and happy when we meet
I'll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet
I'll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joys will never end
I'll fly away.

So it goes.
