Paul Campbell

Hey! We are following the footsteps of those who've gone before and we'll all be reunited on that new and sunlit shore.

Chorus:
Oh, when the saints go marching in, (Repeat) oh, Lord, I want to be in that number when the saints go marching in.

And when the sun refuse to shine, (Repeat) oh, Lord, I want to be in that number when the sun refuse to shine.

Oh, when the trumpet sound it's call, (Repeat) oh, Lord, I want to be in that number when the trumpet sounds that call.

Oh, when the new world is revealed, (Repeat) oh, Lord, I want to be in that number when the new world is revealed.

(Chorus)
