Old gospel ship

       

Chorus:

I'm(D) gonna take a trip in that old (A) gospel (D) ship

I'm going far beyond the (A) sky

(D) I'm gonna shout and sing until (A) heaven (D) rings

when I bid this (A) world good(D)bye

 

Verse !

(D) I have good news to bring, and that is (A)why I (D)sing

all my joys with you I'll (A) share

I'm (D) gonna take a trip in that old(A) gospel(D) ship

and go sailing (A) through the (D) air

 

Verse 2

(D) I can scarcely wait, I know I (A) won't be (D) late

I'll spend my time in (A) prayer

And(D) when the ship comes in, I'll leave this (A) world of (D)sin

and go sailing (A) through the (D) air

 

Verse3

(D) If you're ashamed of me, you ought (A)not to (D) be

yes, you better have a (A) care

If(D) too much fault you find, you will sure be (A) left be(D)hind

while I'm sailing (A) through the(D) air
