When you get to heaven, I'll be waiting
When you get to heaven, I'll be there
Just inside the pearly gates darling, that's where I'll wait
When you get to heaven, I'll be there.

If I should go first and have to leave you
To face this life alone with all it's cares
Darling, don't forget you'll find me waiting
To help you climb up heaven's golden stairs.

When you get to heaven, I'll be waiting
When you get to heaven, I'll be there
Just inside the pearly gates darling, that's where I'll wait
When you get to heaven, I'll be there.

--- Instrumental ---

Sometimes this old road gets rough and rocky
And sometimes you may wonder what's the use
But darling, keep your chin up and keep smiling
'Cause inside heaven's door, I'll wait for you.

When you get to heaven, I'll be waiting
When you get to heaven, I'll be there
Just inside the pearly gates darling, that's where I'll wait
When you get to heaven, I'll be there.

When you get to heaven, I'll be there...
