EVERYBODY WANTS TO GO TO HEAVEN
Words and Music: Loretta Lynn


Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.


Once upon a time there lived a man and his name was Hezekiah.
He walked with God both day and night but he didn't want to die.
He cried, "Oh Lord please let me live, death is close I know."
God smiled down on Hezekiah, he gave him fifteen years to go.


Chorus:
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.
Lord I wanna go to heaven but I don't want to die.
Well I long for the day when I have new birth,
'Cos I love a livin' here on earth.
Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.


When Jesus lived here on this earth He knew His Father's plan.
He knew that He must give His life to save the soul of man.
When Judas had betrayed Him the Father heard Him cry.
He was brave until His death but He didn't want to die.


Chorus


Everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die.
