This song is by Alison Krauss and appears on the album I Know Who Holds Tomorrow (1994).

This song is a cover of "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" by Loretta Lynn.
Original video
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Once upon a time there lived a man and his name was Isaac
He walked with God both day and night but he didn't wanna die
He cried, oh Lord, please let me live, death is close I know
God smiled down on Isaac and gave him fifteen years to go

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Lord I wanna go to heaven but I don't wanna die
I long for the day when I'll have new birth
'Cause I love the living here on Earth
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

When Jesus lived here on this Earth he knew his father's plan
He knew that he must give his life to save the soul of men
When Judas had betrayed him her father heard him cry
He was brave until his death but he didn't wanna die

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die
Lord I wanna go to heaven but I don't wanna die
I long for the day when I'll have new birth
'Cause I love the living here on Earth
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die

Loretta Lynn
