When I Go Away

Levon Helm

Tom: Am

Am 
Early in the morning, when the church bells toll 
                                            E7 
The choir's gonna sing, and the hearse will roll 
                Am 
On down to the graveyard, where it's cold and gray 
             C                             G            D     Am 
And then the sun's gonna shine through the shadows when I go away 

Am 
Don't want no sorrow, for this old orphan boy 
                                      E7 
I don't want no crying, only tears of joy 
                 Am 
I'm gonna see my mother, gonna see my father 
             C                     G            D     Am 
And I'll be bound for glory in the morning when I go away 


G                                               Am 
I'll be lifted up to the clouds on the wings of angels 
G                                                                 E7 
There's only flesh and bones in the ground where my troubles will stay 
                    Am 
See that storm over yonder, it's gonna rain all day 
             C                             G            D     Am 
But then the sun's gonna shine through the shadows when I go away 


Bridge: 
Am 
(I'm going home - Lift me up)           When I go away 
(I'm going home - Lift me up)           No more crying 
(I'm going home - Lift me up)           No more trials 
(I'm going home - Lift me up)           Home to leave my worries in the ground 
Home to leave my worries in the graveyard 
Home to leave my troubles in the graveyard 
Home to leave my trials 
            C                      G            D     Am 
And I'll be bound for glory in the morning when I go away 

Am 
All my kin who love me, all my friends who care 
                                                E7 
Look beyond the dark clouds we're gonna meet up there 
                        Am 
When they lay me in the cold ground, bow your heads and pray 
            C                      G            D     Am 
And I'll be bound for glory in the morning when I go away 
             C                             G            D     Am 
And then the sun's gonna shine through the shadows when I go away 


Bridge: 

            C                      G            D     Am 
And I'll be bound for glory in the morning when I go away
