I'M GOING THAT WAY 

Key of B, CAPO 4


INTRO
G D G C G


VERSE 1
                G
I've heard of a land of joy and peace
     C         G
And wonderful life
              G
The beautiful place the mansion fair
               D
And skies ever bright
               G
For those who believe the Saviour here
   C          G
Forever shall stay
                 G
And having been saved by grace divine
     D         G
I'm going that way


CHORUS
      G
I'm a-going that way

(I'm a-going that way)
     C            G
I'm a-going that way
G
(I'm on my way)
               G  
And Jesus the saviour I adore is
             D
With me each day
                  G
I'm a-clinging to him
       G
(I'm a-clinging to him)
     C          G
And never shall stray
     G
(And never shall stray)
                G 
For singing His praises all day long
      D          G   
I'm a-going that way
     C          G
(I'm going that way)


VERSE 2
The glorious news I'll tell and sing
As onward I go
For those who are still are straying in sin
My Saviour shall know
I want to sing His praises above
Some beautilful day
For glory to Him who died for me
I'm a-going that way


(CHORUS)


VERSE 3
I know I'll shall meet Him at the gate
When trials shall pass
I know I shall met him face to face
In glory at last
And I believe that when we meet
Well done He will say
For trusting in His redeeming love
I'm a-going that way


(CHORUS)
