Lyrics
Some bright morning when this life is over, I’ll fly away
To a home on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away

Chorus
I’ll fly away, oh glory, I’ll fly away
When I die, hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away

When the shadows of this life have gone, I’ll fly away
Like a bird from these prison walls I’ll fly, I’ll fly away

Oh how glad and happy when we meet, I’ll fly away
No more cold iron shackles on my feet, I’ll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then, I’ll fly away
To a land where joy will never end, I’ll fly away

Been a long time a brewin'
We started this a few months ago but finally got it done. The aim was to make it sound spontaneous – like a good ol campfire singalong. Glad to be back in the Dadai band!

long awaited reunion...
You two always make my singing sound so much better. My better 2/3's... Thanks Rich - for your mixing and I'm thinking especially of the ending - going a cappella. Brilliant choice.

Precious Memories
Did some prison ministry many years ago... this was always a favorite of the friends there. Often requested at hoots as well... haven't been to a hoot in years but this recalls the best of that experience. The millennials have hoots? Guess not...lol.

Daug...
You continue to reveal gems of your background. Prison ministry and hoots - nice. Yeah, hoots went off the radar years ago. Glad to be reminded. cheers...

Sweet gospel song
Love the harmonies and they compliment well the acoustic. A fitting mission that's right to the point. Harmony is extra icing and you couldn't gather a more fitting trio.

Quiet Gospel...
...Nicely done, with sensitivity to the lyrics and a great sense of what works with the vocal harmony. I'd never heard this song, so it is certainly a treat now. Thank you for bringing this wonderful song to light once again.

Paul, so glad to have introduced this old gospel tune to you. Thank you for the nice comments on our performance. We were winging all the way "To a land where joy will never end."
Blessings...

Alley-oop,
Yeah, I've been away much too long. I gotta get back int the MacJams groove! I made some very fine connections here from 2004 to about 2010, when I melted away to "save the farm."
