Someday my time to die will come.
When that will be, I do not know
I only know that when I have to go.
Yeah, when I go— I wanna go
Just let me go— Lord, when I go
Yeah, when I go— Lord, let me go

Just let me go like Elijah when I go
I want to rise right up into the sky
And ride white horses with fiery eyes
Lord for my sins I apologize

Just let me go — Lord when I go
When my time comes for me to go
Just let me go like Elijah when I go
I don't want no tombstone above my head
And I don't want no pinebox for my bed
And I don't want anyone to say I'm dead.
I don't want no one cryin'
Or feelin' sad
Or standin' in the rain without their hat
I wanna go up happy — Imagine that
Yeah, when I go— I wanna go
Just let me go -—Lord, when I go,
Yeah, when I go— Lord, let me go
Just let me go like Elijah when I go
I want to rise right up into the sky
And ride white horses with fiery eyes
Lord for my sins I apologize
Just let me go— Lord when I go
When my time comes for me to go
Just let me go like Elijah when I go...
