LYRICS by Carl Sympter

Some bright morning when this life is over, I’ll fly away.
To that home on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away.
I’ll fly away, oh glory
I’ll fly away in the morning
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away.
When the shadows of this life have gone, I’ll fly away.
Like a bird from these prison walls I’ll fly, I’ll fly away.
I’ll fly away, oh glory
I’ll fly away in the morning
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away.
Oh, how glad and happy when we meet, I’ll fly away.
No more cold iron shackles on my feet, I’ll fly away.
I’ll fly away, oh glory
I’ll fly away in the morning
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away.
Just a few more weary days and then, I’ll fly away.
To a land where joys will never end, I’ll fly away.
I’ll fly away, oh glory
I’ll fly away in the morning
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I’ll fly away.
I’ll fly away..

Here’s an other version (better than mine!):

  1. I am loving your videos and tabs.
    I have a real beginners question. Do you strum each time or do you only pick the string that you are holding down?
    It sounds like there is some plucking and some strumming. I am not sure home to read the tabs.

    • I wrote the notes you HAVE to pluck to get the melodie right. But if you play alone, you can strum roughly all the time. What I do suggest is to own the melodie first. After that, add a strumming at the beginning of each mesure. if you count: 1 and 2 and 3 and four. It will become ”Strum” and 2 and 3 and 4.

      The thing for me is, I can strum all the strings softly and focus on the melodie in the same time. practice is the key.
