Lyrics

(Rivers Rutherford/George Teren)
Brad Paisley & Dolly Parton

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly.

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain.

Chorus:
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
There'll be only happy tears
I'll shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm goin'
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 missed him
Every minute since he left
And then I'll hug his neck.

Chorus:
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
There'll be only happy tears
I'll shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
Don't cry for me down here.

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do.

But when I get where I'm goin'
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
Oh, when I get where I'm goin'
There'll be only happy tears
Hallelujah
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm goin'
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'...

    This is such an amazing song! It has a beautiful message and an amazing sound. This song means alot to me because my Grandmother just passed away yesterday (9-20-2006. 76 years old). Not only does the song point out that there won't be anymore tears when I finally see my Maker's face, but also that I'll see my Grandmother again, and I'll be able to walk and talk with her in Paradise.

    I love you Grandma! I look foward to seeing you again 333

    I have just recently learned to appreciate Brad Paisley and this particular CD was my first one by him and I must say: AWSOME SONG, Brad!!!! I was born and raised in West Virginia and I was proud to learn that he is a West Virginia native. While I generally don't like sappy duets, Dolly Parton was a perfect choice here.
