On My Way to Heaven

This song is by Josh White and Buddy Moss and appears on the compilation album Buddy Moss, Vol. 3 (1935-1941) (1992) by Buddy Moss.

I was standing by the bedside of a neighbor (of a neighbor)
Who was just about to cross the swelling tide (the swelling tide)
And I asked him if he would do me a favor (do me a favor)
Kindly take this message to the other side (the other side)

If you see my Saviour tell Him that you saw me (that you saw me)
When you saw me I was on my way (I was on my way)
You may meet some old friend who may ask you for me (ask you for me)
Tell them I'm coming home some day (coming home some day)

Though you have to make this journey on without me (on without me)
It's a debt that sooner or later must be paid (must be paid)
When you meet that Golden City think about me (think about me)
Don't forget to tell my Saviour what I say (tell Him what I say)

If you see my Saviour tell Him that you saw me (that you saw me)
When you saw me I was on my way (I was on my way)
You may meet some old friend who may ask you for me (ask you for me)
Tell them I'm coming home some day (coming home some day)

You may come across my father or my mother (or my mother)
And the burdens of this life they may recall (may recall)
You may chance to meet my sister or my brother (or my brother)
Please do try to see my Saviour first of all (Oh the first of all)

If you see my Saviour tell Him that you saw me (that you saw me)
When you saw me I was on my way (I was on my way)
[Guitar] Come across some old friend asking for me (asking for me)
Tell them that I'm coming home some day (coming home some day)
