[Intro]
Eb C7 F7 Gm Bb Eb

[Verse]
Eb               Ab            Eb
I've told all my troubles goodby,
                Ab7             Eb
Goodbye to each tear and each sigh.
      Bb       Bbdim  Bb  Bb9 Eb    G7/D  C7
This world where I   roam cannot be my  home,
    F7                          Bb7
I'm bound for that home in the sky.
   Eb         Ab7          Eb
I walk and I talk with my Lord,
              Ab7         Eb
I feast every day on His word,
Bb     Bbdim Bb   Bb9 Eb      G7/D  C7
Heaven is    near and I can't stay here
F7        Bb13   Eb
Goodbye world, goodbye.

[Verse]
Eb               Ab            Eb
I won't have the blues anymore
                Ab7             Eb
When I step across to that shore.
      Bb   Bbdim  Bb  Bb9 Eb    G7/D  C7
And I'll never   pine for I'll leave behind
    F7                          Bb7
My heartaches and cares ever more.
   Eb         Ab7          Eb
A day maybe two then goodbye,
              Ab7         Eb
Goodbye to each sorrow and sigh.
Bb     Bbdim Bb   Bb9 Eb      G7/D  C7
Heaven is    near and I can't stay here
F7        Bb13   Eb
Goodbye world, goodbye.

[Chorus]
               G
Now don't you weep for me when I'm gone
 G7        C7
'cause I won't have to leave here alone.
     F
And when I hear that last trumpet sound
F7    Bb          F7         Bb
   My feet won't stay on the ground.
          Eb           Ab          Eb
I'm gonna rise with a shout, gonna fly,
                   Ab            Eb
Gonna ride with my Lord thru the sky.
Bb     Bbdim Bb   Bb9 Eb      G7/D  C7
Heaven is    near and I can't stay here
F9        Bb13      Eb
Goodbye world, goodbye.
