Staples, Mavis - Too Close / On My Way To Heaven Lyrics




I'm too close to reaching my journeys end
Lord I'm too close, to turn back living in a world of sin
I wouldn't take nothing, Lord for my journey now
You know I sure got to make it to heaven some how
I'm too close, too close to reaching my goal
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, I said I'm too close, too close to saving my soul

You know I'm too close, to heaven to turn around, just can't turn around. [repeat]

[Bass and Drum]

Anyhow, anyhow, my lord.
Down at the cross oh lord you sure got around
You know that I'm on my way to heaven any how
Lord you may, you may shout, you may scorn
Scared alive, scared alive my name
You know that on my way, on my way, on my way, on my way
Sometimes burden, I'm on my way, I get so tired sometimes, I'm on my way
My road gets a rocky,
I'm on my way [x7]
I wonder if you're on your way, I wonder, are you on you're way
I am on my way to heaven anyhow, anyhow.

    If you search for Donny Gerrard, you'll find him and Mavis performing a live version of this - he's really, really good.
