about

This is an old hymn Lee used to play in his early days of playing and singing. When he was working on this project, Lee wanted to give a nod to his early days of playing in a small country church and do an old school hymn. The old hymn, mixed with Lee's soulful, gospel-blues sound is sure to get you tapping your feet and desiring to get up and dance!

I have good new to bring
And that is why I sing,
All my joys with you I will save.
Well I'm gonna take a trip
On the old gospel ship
And go sailing through the air.


Oh I can scarecely wait,
I know I'll not be late.
For I'll spend all my time in prayer
And when my ship comes in,
I will leave this world of sin
And go sailing through the air.


Well I'm gonna take a trip
On the old gospel ship;
I'm going far beyond the sky.
Well I'm gonna shout and sing,
Until heavens bring,
As I'm bidding this world goodbye.


If you are ashamed of me,
You've got no cause to be
What we've got, I ain't ???
It's too much fault you find,
You'll sure be left behind,
I'll go sailing through the air.


Well I'm gonna take a trip
On the old gospel ship;
I'm going far beyond the sky.
Well I'm gonna shout and sing,
Until heavens bring,
As I'm bidding this world goodbye.
As I'm bidding this world goodbye.
