"I pray that our Heavenly Father may relieve the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom."

~ Abraham Lincoln, November 1864 ~

HOW FAR IS HEAVEN
 
Recorded by Kitty Wells
Writers: Tillman Franks and Jimmie Davis 
Lyrics Provided By Cowboylyrics.com
 
[C] A little girl was waiting for her daddy one [G7]
                           day
It was time to meet him when she heard her mommy
                           [C] say
Come to  mama,
                           darling, please do not [F] cry
Daddy’s gone to [C] heaven, [G7] way up in
                           the [C] sky. 
               
                                     
                      CHORUS 
[C] How [C7] Far Is [F] Heaven, when can I [C] go
                           
To see my [G7] daddy, he's there, I [C] know
How [C7] Far Is [F] Heaven, let's go to-[C] night
                           
I want my [G7] daddy to hold me [C] tight. 
  
He was called so suddenly and could not say goodbye
                           
I know that he's in heaven, we'll meet him by and
                           by 
The little girl trembled, her tears she could not
                           hide 
She looked up towards heaven and then she replied.
                           
                                CHORUS
