Wings In The Morning


Johnny Cash

I came across this song on YouTube, it was written by Johnny Cash. He is my favorite country singer. Johnny Cash was born in 1932 and passed away in 2003, four months after his wife June died. You can read a really nice autobiography about him here.

Wings in the Morning
by Johnny Cash

My Grandfather lived by the book all his life.
On rich bottomed land with twelve kids and a wife.
He never saw TV nor rode on a jet airplane.
But he knew that Heaven was holding his claim.
CHORUS
Wings in the morning and license to fly
Straight to the portals of nevermore die
Nevermore pain in them old aching bones
Wings in the morning to carry us home.

The salt of the earth yet with faith in the Lord
They all got together in that one accord
Ane what could be greater than God's guarantee
That man could have heaven for eternity.
Sing CHORUS again
Rocks in the road and we stumble and fall
Lights getting low so we can't see at all
But I promise you on that gettin up day
Wings in the morning and we'll fly away.
Sing CHORUS again.

You can find this song on YouTube, Johnny Cash videos. I just love to go to YouTube music videos, I find all the singers and my favorite old songs and you can down load them. Hope you are enjoying our nice cool weather, it makes us energetic.

I am loving this weather. Spend a lot more time outside now that it has cooled off. That song is beautiful by Johnny Cash. He is one of my favorites, too. His voice is so deep and rich and distinctive. I would recognize it anywhere.

Nice song. Been enjoying the cooler weather, but it sure hasn't made me feel more energetic, at least not yet. LOL I think I just have TB, tired butt.

Always loved listening to Johnny Cash. Went to an open air concert at Chastain (Atlanta) many years ago. June sang more than he did, but it was still good.

WE love Johnny Cash too, and have a wonderful train DVD called " Ridin the Rails" Johnny tells the history of trains. He sings some great songs in the program

The words in this song are beautiful. Johnny mostly did sang down to earth songs. I really like this picture of him.

I'll have to check out those YouTube videos.
