My Soul's Got Wings
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by John Mellencamp

Well I've got a house, way up in the sky
Yes, I got a house, way up in the sky
Life may be dreary, but I can still sing
Fly up to heaven, on my soul's wings

Well my soul Lord, My soul's got wings
My load is heavy, but I can still sing
Climb up my mountain, walk on my sea
Fly up to heaven, on my soul's wings

Well I've got a house, way up in the sky
Yes, I got a house, way up in the sky
Life may be dreary, but I can still sing
Fly up to heaven, on my soul's wings

So full of joy now, don't know what to say
Kneel at my bedside, each night to pray
Sleep on my pillow, all night I dream
Gonna fly up to heaven, on my soul's wings

Wake me up in the morning, way up in the sun
Work for my Lord, 'til my work's done
Night time I stop, to count my good deeds
Fly up to heaven, on my soul's wings

Well I've got a house, way up in the sky
Yes, I got a house, way up in the sky
Life may be dreary, but I can still sing
Fly up to heaven, on my soul's wings
