I’ll Fly Away

(Albert E Brumley)

Some glad morning when this life is o’er
I’ll fly away
To a home on God’s celestial shore
I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away O glory
I’ll fly away
When I die, Hallelujah by and by
I’ll fly away

When the shadows of this life have grown
I’ll fly away
Like a bird from prison bars has flown
I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away O glory
I’ll fly away
When I die, Hallelujah by and by
I’ll fly away

Just a few more weary days and then
I’ll fly away
To a land where joys shall never end
I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away

I’ll fly away O glory
I’ll fly away
When I die, Hallelujah by and by
I’ll fly away

I’ll Fly AwayAlbert Edward Brumley (1905-1977) of Spiro, Oklahoma, wrote this gospel classic in 1929. The esteemed Mr Brumley published over 800 songs, which is really going some. I’ll Fly Away has been recorded at least 1000 times; it’s become a staple of our live set, but we’ve no great desire to add to the number of recordings.I first came across I’ll Fly Away on the wonderful 1972 album In Search of Amelia Earhart, by Plainsong.
