The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

There'll Be No Distinction There

There will be no more sorrow on that heavenly shore
There'll be no wolves a-howlin' near the (2) old cabin 5 door
We will 1 all be quite wealthy and there'll (4) be no more 1 poor
When we all get together on that 5 Heavenly 1 shore

There'll be no distinction there (over there)
There'll be no distinction 5 there
For the 1 Lord am just and the Lord am right
And we'll all be white in the Heavenly light
There'll be no dis- 5 tinction 1 there

In the same kind of raiment and the same kind of shoes
We'll all sit together in the same kind of pews
The white folks and the colored, the gentiles and the Jews
They will all be so happy that they dare not refuse

They tell me up in Heaven, we will all be as one
And we'll all sing together when the life-crown is won
Our fathers and our mothers and sisters will be there
And they tell me up in Heaven no distinction there
