Lyrics
(Lou Gottlieb)
[Chorus:]
Good news, chariot's comin'. [Repeat 2x]
And I don't want it to leave me behind. [Repeat chorus first time]

There's a long white robe in heaven I know (there's a long white robe in heaven I know)
There's a long white robe in heaven I know and I don't want it to leave me behind.

[Chorus]

There's a starry crown in heaven I know (there's a starry crown in heaven I know)
There's a starry crown in heaven I know and I don't want it to leave me behind.

[Chorus]

There's a golden harp in heaven I know (there's a golden harp in heaven I know)
There's a golden harp in heaven I know and I don't want to leave it behind.

[Chorus]
