The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Sweet Heaven in My View

Got sweet heaven in my view, hallelujah
On my 4 journey I press on, praise the 1 lord
For I'm 4 bound for that holy 1 city
Got sweet 5 heaven in my 1 view

Oh my mother she died and left me
I'm alone in this world, I'm alone
And my father he won't own me
Got to find me another home

Oh you need not talk about me
Just because I am crippled and blind
For I've got my ticket purchased
I'll reach heaven just on time

And when I get to heaven
Take a seat and sit right down
Looking up to my heavenly father
Looking for a robe and a crown
