Let me tell you I appreciate all the love and strength
You've shown.
I know it's hard to keep a smile on your face,
And nobody could eva' take their place.

Every mother, every sister/brother, every child that's now gone,
I know they're smilin' looking down on your face.
In a better place, I'll hear them say........

Can't nobody hurt me,
Can't nobody fade me, (oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place.
Can't nobody harm me,
Can't nobody touch me.
I'm resting in a better place.

I'll keep standing through the trial of life even if I
Stand alone.
Through the times when I feel I can't go on,
I feel a hand pusin' me upward.

Man, I don't have no time for haters, this journey
Will be love.
I'm in a much better state of mind.
And this is where I'll stay. A better place.....

Can't nobody hurt me,
Can't nobody fade me, (oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place. (oh no!)
Can't nobody harm me,
Can't nobody touch me. (oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place.

Can't nobody hurt me, (no more sorrows)
I'm okay now. (oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place.
I miss you. I'm always in your heart.
A better place.....

Can't nobody hurt me,
Can't nobody fade me, (oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place.(oh no!)
Can't nobody harm me,
Can't nobody touch me.(oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place.

Can't nobody hurt me,
Can't nobody fade me, (oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place.(oh no!)
Can't nobody harm me,
Can't nobody touch me.(oh no!)
I'm resting in a better place.

(ad libs)
