This song is one of the more simple Stevie Wonder-songs, like "I Wish" and
"Superstition".
It is based around this 2-bar main groove, part A, and repeatedly returns
to this starting point.

It's pointless to notate all those Eb7-chords as either are minor or major:
Most of the time they're neither, Eb7sus, sometimes they're both, Eb7(#9),
and both minor and major 3rd is often thrown in as a bluesy spice.

[LYRICS]


[Verse]

People keep on learnin'
Soldiers keep on warrin'
World keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long

Powers keep on lyin'
While your people keep on dyin'
World keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long


[Chorus]

I'm so darn glad he let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach my highest ground


[Verse]

Teachers keep on teachin
Preachers keep om preachin
World keep on turnin
'Cause it won't be too long, oh no

Lovers keep on lovin'
Believers keep on believin'
Sleepers just stop sleepin'
'Cause it won't be too long


[Chorus]

I'm so glad that he let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
Till I reach my highest ground


[Bridge]

Till I reach my highest ground
No one's gonna bring me down
Till I reach my highest ground
Don't you let nobody bring you down (they'll sho 'nuff try)
God is gonna show you higher ground
He's the only friend you have around
'Cause the rest of the world will bring you down
