lyrics

i got a long way to go, i'm on a narrow road
but i ain't looking for some fountain of youth
no i ain't scared of growing old
no i ain't afraid of the divine truth

and if i ever get there i'll let you know
send you my address from my new home
and if i ever get there i'm gonna settle in
and watch the rest of my life begin
if i ever get there

yeah, they ask me if i'm ready for the long long ride
yeah, i got all i'm gonna need
i got a beautiful girl here at my side
i got the love of God and a book to read

and if i ever get there i'll let you know
send you my address from my new home
and if i ever get there i'm gonna settle in
and watch the rest of my life begin
if i ever get there

now, way way way up in the sky
or deep down under the ocean
wherever i am when i walk towards the light
i guess i'll have what i need to cross the Jordan
if i ever get there

i'm gonna climb up into that noisy old bus
they'll shut the door and away we'll go
yeah, they got enough seats for all of us
me and CS Lewis and EA Poe

and if i ever get there i'll let you know
send you my address from my new home
and if i ever get there i'm gonna settle in
and watch the rest of my life begin
if i ever get there
