2 Corinthians 6:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:7-8
original performance in G, capo in the 5th position with D form
[G]I'm waiting at the gate, [C]lookin' for [G]my ride
[C]soon to [G]take me to my home on [D7]high
Angel bands a [G]comin' from the [C]other [G]side
I don't want to be[D7] late, I'm waiting at the [G]gate[G7]
I can hear the [C]thunder, my time's at [G]hand
[G]joy bells are ringin' in the promise[D7] land
Jesus is [G]comin', my [C]soul to [G]take
[G]yes, my Lord sees [D7]me, waiting at the [G]gate

one verse instrumental between chorus and verse

[G]I'm leaving this world, [C]no more[G] to do
[C]all my [G]work on earth is [D7]through
I've fought the [G]fight, I've [C]kept the [G]faith
I'm ready to [D7]go, I'm waitin' at the gate
I can hear the [C]thunder, my time's at [G]hand
[G]joy bells are ringin' in the promise[D7] land
Jesus is [G]comin', my [C]soul to [G]take
[G]yes, my Lord sees [D7]me, waiting at the [G]gate
abbreviated instumental - last two lines of chorus
I can hear the [C]thunder, my time's at [G]hand
[G]joy bells are ringin' in the promise[D7] land
Jesus is [G]comin', my [C]soul to [G]take
[G]yes, my Lord sees [D7]me, waiting at the [G]gate
[G]yes, my Lord sees [D7]me, waiting at the [G]gate
[G]yes, my Lord sees [D7]me, waiting at the [G]gate

Ricky Scaggs tells this story: Mr. Bill Monroe loved to go to church. In his last years, he wasn't able to drive,
so a preacher friend would come and pick Mr. Bill up. The preacher said, "Mr. Bill was never late. He would be standing
at the gate waiting for me to pick him up." Paul Brewster heard this story at Mr. Monroe's memorial service and later
wrote this some.
