intro: Dm
Dm
Well, Jesus gonna be here

Gonna be here soon

he’s gonna cover us up with leaves
A7
With a blanket from the moon
Dm
With a promise and a vow
Gm
And a lullaby for my brow
Dm A7
Jesus gonna be here
Dm
gonna be here soon

Well I’m just gonna do nothin’ but wait here
I don’t have to shout
I got no reason and
And I got no doubt
I’m gonna get myself unfurled
From this mortal coiled up world
Jesus gonna be here
Gonna be here soon

I got to keep my eyes open
So I can see my Lord
I’m gonna watch the horizon
For a brand new Ford

I can hear him rolling on down the lane
I said Hollywood be thy name
Jesus gonna be
Gonna be here soon

Well I gotta keep myself faithful
And you know I’ve been so good
Except for drinking
But he new that I would
I’m gonna leave this place better
Than the way I found it was
And Jesus gonna be here
Gonna be here soon
