Subject: Lyr Add: WINGS IN THE MORNING (Johnny Cash)
Transcribed from the sound file at the Record Lady's web site:

(Johnny Cash)

CHORUS: Wings in the morning and license to fly
Straight to the portals of never-more-die
Nevermore pain in them old aching bones.
Wings in the morning to carry us home.

My grandfather lived by the book all his life
On rich bottomland with twelve kids and a wife.
He never saw TV nor rode a jet plane,
But he knew that heaven was holding his plane. CHORUS

The salt of the earth, yet with faith in the Lord,
They all got together in that one accord,
And what could be greater than God's guarantee
That we can have heaven for eternity? CHORUS

Rocks in the road and we stumble and fall;
Light's getting low so we don't see at all;
But I promise you, on that getting-up day,
Wings in the morning, we'll fly away. CHORUS TWICE
