When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

We saw houses falling from the sky

Where the mountains lean down to the sand

We saw blackbirds circling 'round an old castle keep

And I stood on the cliff and held your hand

 

We walked troubles brooding wind swept hills

And we loved and we laughed the pain away

At the end of the journey, when our last song is sung

Will you meet me in Heaven someday

 

Can't be sure of how's it's going to be

When we walk into the light across the bar

But I'll know you and you'll know me

Out there beyond the stars

 

We've seen the secret things revealed by God

And we heard what the angels had to say

Should you go first, or if you follow me

Will you meet me in Heaven someday

Living in a mansion on the streets of gold

At the corner of Grace and Rapture Way

In sweet ecstasy while the ages roll

Will you meet me in Heaven someday

In sweet ecstasy while the ages roll

Will you meet in Heaven someday

- "Meet Me in Heaven," Johnny Cash, Unchained Album http://www.royblakeley.name/larry_blakeley/songs/johnny_cash/unchained.htm, 1996.
