Lyrics

WHEN I REACH MY DESTINATION

I?ve had my share of hard times
And I?ve made a lot of friends
Gotta a good woman who stood by me
Through thick and through thin
And when I reach my destination
I?ll be with Jesus and our old friends

I know you?re gonna miss me
I?m missin? you tonight
Just whisper I love you
And it will be alright
And when I reach my destination
I?ll be with Jesus and our old friends

I?ll look up some old family
I?ll catch up with old friends
I?ll ask how they?re doin?
And I?ll tell them how we?ve been
And the places that we?ve seen
The family we?ve raised together
The love we?ll forever share
And those memories

Well, I?ll look up some old family
I?ll catch up with old friends
I?ll ask how they?re doin?
And I?ll tell them how we?ve been
And the places that we?ve seen
The family we?ve raised together
The love we?ll forever share
And those memories

I?ve gotta say so long
But this ain?t goodbye
We?re only here for a visit
Til we learn to fly
And when I reach my destination
I?ll be with Jesus and our old friends

I?m right there beside you baby
Every step of the way
