Lyrics

One of these days will be my time to go, off to a place that I don't know;
that's when I'll be setting down my load, and heading out across that mountain road.

You won't be seeing me around much more; I'll be one of those mem'ries people store;
perhaps they will think I was a fool, but I pray there'll be no cause to call me cruel.

[Cho.]
I've been living in this valley a long, long time, but I've never seen what's beyond that mountain line;
yet one of these days my soul will be free, and I'll be part of that great mystery.

Some people say that when I die I'll come back as a king or goat or fly;
while others say that it's been clearly told, I'll pass on to that glorious place of gold.

Though I wonder of that place I go, still there are some things I surely know;
there's a Spirit who will see me through, together with the love I get from you.

[Cho.]

I don't really want to say goodbye, and I don't want to see you need to cry;
the human soul we'll never comprehend, but some way I'll be with you to the end.

[Cho.]

One of these days will be my time to go, off to a place that I don't know;
that's when I'll be setting down my load, and heading out across that mountain road.

[Cho.]

One of these days my soul will be free,
and I'll be part of that great mystery.

2000 James M. Cooper
