SPIRIT IN THE SKY

 

G

When I die and they lay me to rest

                              C
Gonna go to the place that's the best

                          G
When I lay me down to die

D7                                                G
Goin' on up to the spirit in the sky

 

G
Goin' on up to the spirit in the sky

                                                         C
That's where I'm gonna go when I die

                                 G
When I die and they lay me to rest

             D7                                      G
Gonna go to the place that's the best

Prepare yourself you know it's a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He's gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky


Gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky
That's where you're gonna go when you die
When you die and they lay you to rest
You're gonna go to the place that's the best

Never been a sinner I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He's gonna set me up with


The spirit in the sky
Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best
Go to the place that's the best
