"Way Over Yonder" as written by and Carole King....
Way over yonder
Is a place that I know
Where I can find shelter
From a hunger and cold
And the sweet tastin' good life
Is so easily found
A way over yonder, that's where I'm bound

I know when I get there
The first thing I'll see
Is the sun shining golden
Shining right down on me
Then trouble's gonna lose me
Worry leave me behind
And I'll stand up proudly
In true peace of mind

Talkin' about
Talkin' about

A way over yonder
Is a place I have seen
In a garden of wisdom
From some long ago dream
Oh yeah

Oh maybe tomorrow
I'll find find my way
To the land where the honey runs
In rivers each day
And the sweet tastin' good life
Is so easily found
A way over yonder
That's where I'm bound

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
A way over yonder
That's where I'm bound

    My InterpretationTo me, this is about finding your inner peace. "Way over yonder"- that place within your self that is at peace with you and every aspect of life, good and bad. The sweet tasting good life is so easily found, even when life gets hard, b/c no one has power over you any more! What an ideal state! I'm still working on reaching that state I tell ya! Some days are easier than others.

    My InterpretationTo me, it has two meanings.
    1) It can mean finding tranquility and inner peace.
    2) It can mean eternal paradise or Heaven.

    I lean towards tranquility, but it's just the feel of the song reminds me of a gospel. I absolutely love the song, it's actually my favorite song from the album Tapestry. (even more than it's too late or I Feel The Earth Move)
