bound for higher ground – the new journeymen lyrics

met my mother this morning
comin’ up the hill so soon
trying to get to heaven in due time, for the heaven don’t close

trying to get to heaven in due time, for the heaven don’t close
she’s bound for higher ground
she’s seeking the golden ground
and she can’t remain on this earthly land, she’s bound for higher ground

(why don’t you) wake me
shake me
don’t ever sleep to late
wake up children in the morning
swing on the golden gate
wake up children in the morning
swing on the golden gate

(you know i’m bound) i’m bound for higher ground
(i’m bound) i’m seeking the golden ground
and i can’t remain on this earthly land, i’m bound for higher ground
(you know i’m bound) i’m bound for higher ground
(yes, i’m bound) i’m seeking the golden ground
and i can’t remain on this earthly land, i’m bound for higher ground

i met my sister this morning
comin’ up the hill so soon
trying to get to heaven in due time, for the heaven don’t close
trying to get to heaven in due time, for the heaven don’t close
(you know she’s a bound) she’s bound for higher ground
(she’s bound) she’s seeking the golden ground
and she can’t remain on this earthly land, she’s bound for higher ground

i met my brother this morning
comin’ up the hill so soon
you know he’s trying to get to heaven in due time, for the heaven don’t close
trying to get to heaven in due time, for the heaven don’t close
(they’re both bound) they’re bound for higher ground
(they’re bound) they’re seeking the golden ground
and they can’t remain on this earthly land, they’re bound for higher ground
(you know they’re bound) they’re bound for higher ground
(said they’re bound) they’re seeking the golden ground
and they can’t remain on this earthly land, they’re bound for higher ground

(why don’t you) wake me
shake me
don’t ever sleep to late
wake up children in the morning
swing on the golden gate
wake up children in the morning
swing on the golden gate
you know i’m bound for higher ground
i’m seeking the golden ground
and i can’t remain on this earthly land, i’m bound for higher ground
and i can’t remain on this earthly land, i’m bound for higher ground
