Terry Pinnegar emailed me and graciously said "GO FOR IT!" in reply to my request to post the full lyrics here at Mudcat, so here they are:

FLYIN' SHOES
(Terry Pinnegar)

I see
The way you're lookin' at me
Ev'ry time
I walk your way.
You can see my time
Is as thin as a dime,
But you can't see
What to say.

Chorus:
Have you forgotten
Just where I'm bound
When this burden I've carried so long is gone?
Stop wringin' your hands,
Start ringin' some bells!
If you want to help me,
Help me get my Flyin' Shoes on!
If you want to help me,
Help me get my Flyin' Shoes on!

I hear
The songs you're singin' for me
And I love
The way God's love sounds.
I close my eyes
And it's the pain that dies
And I see myself
Just floating above the ground.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
I know my time is near,
I feel the spirit here.
I know I might not see tomorrow.
I see a brand new day
Breaking a brand new way
And I will not again know sorrow.

I was born in style
And a beautiful smile.
I can't help it,
I was just bound to astound.
Think of the colors I'll wear
When I'm dancing up there
While the heavenly choir sings
Standing on holy ground!

Last chorus:
Have you forgotten
Just where I'm bound
When this burden I've carried so long is gone?
Stop wringin' your hands,
Start ringin' some bells!
If you want to help me,
Help me get my Flyin' Shoes on! - Don't just stand there! -
If you want to help me, child,
Help me get my Flyin' Shoes on!

Although it's not the same tune, this song has a lot of the sound and feel of CCNY's "Teach Your Children."   I just love it!
