Lyrics

Saw my mother this morning
Walkin' down that long, lonesome road
Tryin' to make it in due time
Before the heaven doors close
Tryin' to make it in due time
Before the heaven doors close

Chorus
Wake me shake me
Don't let me sleep too long
Try to make it in due time
Before the heaven doors close
Try to make it in due time
Before the heaven doors close

Well I saw my sister this morning
Walkin' down that long, lonesome road
Tryin' to make it in due time
Before the heaven doors close
Tryin' to make it in due time
Before the heaven doors close

Thought I heard her say
Chorus

Instrumental break

Just a little bit softer
I got the fever down in my soul
I'm so weak
Yes I am
And I gotta say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I was walkin' by the river this morning
I was thinkin' about that lonesome road
Gotta make it in due time before the heaven doors close
I'm trying to make it in due time before the heaven doors close

Chorus
