​Your Long Journey

This song is by The Doc Watson Family and appears on the album The Watson Family (1963).

God's given us years of happiness here
Now we must part
And as the angels come and call for you
The pangs of grief tug at my heart

Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey

Oh the days will be empty, the nights so long
Without you, my love
And as God calls for you, I'm left alone
But we will meet in Heaven above

Fond memories I'll keep of happy ways
That one Earth we've trod
And when I come we will walk hand in hand
As one in Heaven in the family of God
