I'LL FLY AWAY

[C] Some glad morning when this life is [C7] o'er
[F] I'll (fly away) Fly Away (fly a-[C] way)
To a home on God's celestial shore
I'll (fly away) [G7] Fly Away (fly a-[C] way).

CHORUS
[C] I'll (fly away) Fly Away, Oh! Glo-[C7] ry
[F] I'll (fly away) Fly A-[C] way (in the morning)
When I die, Hallelujah, by and by
I'll (fly away) [G7] Fly Away (fly a-[C] way).

When the shadows of this life has grown
I'll (fly away) Fly Away (fly away)
Like a bird from prison bars has flown
I'll (fly away) Fly Away (fly away)

CHORUS

Just a few more weary days and then
I'll (fly away) Fly Away (fly away)
To a land where joys shall never end
I'll (fly away) Fly Away (fly away).

CHORUS
