When I die and they lay me to rest

Gonna go to the place that’s the best

When I lay me down to die

Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky

 

Goin’ up to the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)

That’s where I’m gonna go when I die (when I die)

When I die and they lay me to rest

Gonna go to the place that’s the best

 

Prepare yourself you know it’s a must

Gotta have a friend in Jesus

So you know that when you die

He’s gonna recommend you

To the spirit in the sky

 

Gonna recommend you

To the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)

That’s where you’re gonna go when you die (when I die)

When you die and they lay you to rest

You’re gonna go to the place that’s the best

 

 

Never been a sinner. I never sinned

I got a friend in Jesus

So you know that when I die

He’s gonna set me up with

The spirit in the sky

 

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)

That’s where I’m gonna go when I die (when I die)

When I die and they lay me to rest

I’m gonna go to the place that’s the best

Go to the place that’s the best
