When I Get Where I'm Going Tab

Intro - Csus4-C - Csus4-C - Csus4-C - Bb


    Am7      C/B        C           F        Am7     F or (Am/5+)
When I get where I'm goin, on the far side of the sky,
      F          G        C     Am7      F       C         Gsus-G
The first thing that I'm gonna do, is spread my wings and fly,


       Am7    C/B      C                F        Am7         F
Gonna land beside a lion, and run my fingers through his mane,
   F        G        C      Am7     F      C       Gsus-G
Or I might find out what's like to ride a drop of rain, yea


(Chorus)
          F                                 C
Yea, When I get where I'm goin, They'll be only happy tears,
        G                                      F                C
I will shed these sins and struggles I have carried all these years,
           F
And I'll leave my heart wide open,
        Am
I will love and have no fear,
         G
Yea when I get where I'm goin,
                       C
Don't cry for me down here,


I'm gonna walk with my grand-daddy, And he'll match me step for step,
And I'll tell him how I've missed him every minute since he left,
And then I'll hug his neck,


(Chorus)
          F                                 C
YEa, When I get where I'm goin, They'll be only happy tears,
        G                                      F                C
I will shed these sins and struggles I have carried all these years,
           F
And I'll leave my heart wide open,
        Am
I will love and have no fear,
         G
Yea when I get where I'm goin,
                       C
Don't cry for me down here,


(Bridge)
         D#
So much pain and so much darkness,
         F
In this world will stumble through,
           G#
All these questions I can't answer,
             Bb
And so much work to do,


                              Am7 - C/B  - C       
But when I get where I'm goin, 
      F         Am7     F
and I see my Makers face,
      F     G         C     Am7     F     C     Gsus-G
I'll stand forver in the light, of his amazing grace,


          F                  C
Yea, When I get where I'm goin,
         F                                 C
Oh, When I get where I'm goin, They'll be only happy tears,
     F              C
Hallelujah, I will love and have no fear,
  F                         C
Ahhh when I get where I'm goin,
         F                   C
Yea when I get where I'm goin,
