Brad Paisley & Dolly Parton — When I Get Where I'm Going lyrics

When I get where I'm goin'
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop o' rain

Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years

And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my Grandaddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I've missed him
Every minute since he left
And then I'll hug his neck

Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years

And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
Don't cry for me down here

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
And so much work to do

But when I get where I'm goin'
And I see my Maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of His amazing grace

Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
Oh when I get where I'm goin'
There'll be only happy tears
I love you, yeah
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm goin'
Yeah, when I get where I'm goin'
