Eternal Vacation

This song is by Buck Owens and appears on the album Dust On Mother'S Bible (1966).

Some people are taking vacation
traveling both far and near
Ever stop and think about Jesus
Ever see him to have a care
It seems that I cannot be like them
While on earth life's burdens I bear
And I prepare to meet Jesus
And rest eternaly there.

Yes, someday I'll take a vacation
One that never will end
When I'll cross old river Jordan
my Saviour will welcome me in
For me the gates will swing open
And I'll have a mansion within
There I will rest up in heaven
A rest that never will end.

--- Instrumental ---

Yes, some people own fine mansions
some live in much luxury
Never having a thought about Saviour
Of where they'll spend eternity
And though I cannot be like them
I'm building my mansion on high
Yes, someday I'll rest up in heaven
And leave this old cruel world, goodbye.

Yes, someday I'll take a vacation
One that never will end
When I'll cross old river Jordan
my Saviour will welcome me in
For me the gates will swing open
And I'll have a mansion within
There I will rest up in heaven
A rest that never will end...
