Will Hoge When I Get My Wings Lyrics

Won't you take me with you darling, I don't wanna stay
And this place just keeps on getting sadder ever since you went away
And I smell you on this pillow as I lie here in our old bed
With a bottle and a bible, I just pray I might get some rest

But when I get my wings I'ma gonna
Fly back home to you
And go ahead and you can tell St. Peter
Open up, I'm coming through

And I put you in that blue dress and a new pair of high heel shoes
And a photograph of two love drunk kids on the day that they said I do
57 years of memories fall like the rain comes down
And I could not help myself but cry as they laid you in the ground

But when I get my wings I'ma gonna
Fly back home to you
Go ahead and you can tell St. Peter
Open up, I'm coming on through

And every Sunday I kneel down to pray that I won't be alone
And every night I lay down and hope I wake up back in your arms

But when I get my wings I'ma gonna
Fly back home to you
And go ahead and you can tell St. Peter
Open up, I'm coming on through

And I don't think, don't think I can wait any longer
Oh Lord I'm counting down the days
I'm gonna come back, come back and hold you my love
Soon as I get my wings, oh Lord
Just as soon as I get my wings
One more time Lord
Soon as I get my wings
