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.
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.
