Spirit In The Sky

This song was originally written by Norman Greenbaum for his 1969 album by the same name.

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that’s the best
And you know that when I die
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
Goin’ up to the sp-
Goin’ up to the
Goin’ up to the
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s best

Best
Best
Best

Prepare yourself you know it’s a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
And you know that when I die
Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky

Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky
That’s where I’m gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I’m gonna go to the place that’s best

Jesus
