Alan Jackson – Sissy's Song lyrics

Why did she have to go
So young I just don't know why
Things happen half the time
Without reason without rhyme
Lovely, sweet young woman
Daughter, wife and mother
Makes no sense to me
I just have to believe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

Loved ones she left behind
Just trying to survive
And understand the why
Feeling so lost inside
Anger shot straight at God
Then asking for His love
Empty with disbelief
Just hoping that maybe

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

It's hard to say goodbye
Her picture in my mind
They'll always be of times I'll cherish
And I won't cry 'cause

She flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And she walks with Jesus and her loved ones waiting
And I know she's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't worry 'bout me
Don't worry 'bout me

    Sissy's Song wos the first song I heard within minutes of being told my daughter of my heart had passed away during the night of June 20th. This is so Leellyn. I know she's picking wild flowers behind the rainbow saying don't worry 'bout me while she waits for us to come and join her. A beautiful woman inside and out. She was an amazing woman who had finally recovered from a brutal marriage and had regained her internal spirit. I love her so much and I feel her loss so much. I know she flew to heaven on the wings of angels. Alan. Thank you for giving us this woderful message of comfort.

    I just found out what this song was made for and bravo alan! I wish the song was made before my mom died, I would have played this at the funeral. She was on life support due to multipal organ failure and pnumonia. We took her off Life support and lowered her pain meds long enough for her to see my brother who just arrived from Iraq. She died 3 minutes later.

    This song reminds me of my baby girl who was only 17 when she decided it was time to go. She had the roughest life but knew that I would always be there for her. Then the one day I wasnt there I got the call that this mother, daughter, and my soon to be wife had left us to return to the arms of her one and only father, the ever present God.

    This song has me crying yet smiling because I know that the beautiful young woman who spent the last 4 years of her life disabled due to a screwed up Medicaid system is now pain free and sending her grandfather the bird when he tells silly jokes. She was only 17 when the system refused to pay for a 30. 00 test resulting in an undiscovered abscess going to her brain. 4 years unable to move without assistance and able to communicate using a very crude form of sign language, and now she flies with the angels. Because our government refused to spend 30. 00 and would not allow anyone else to pay for the test, they spent close to 1. 5 million dollars to allow this beautiful soul to wither away and die.
    She will be missed.

    My mom passed away on December 18, 2008 and I dedicate this song to her. I miss her more than words can say. We were very close and lived together for years. She built her house on to ours. She left us so peacefully I know she is with the Lord and saying the same thing to us: "Don't Worry About Me". She will always be with me forever in my heart. Love ya, Mom.

    My sister, Laura, passed away on June 13th, 2009. I am an avid listener to country music, and know of this song well. I bought the cd so we could play the song at her service. She has a fast spreading cancer and it took our wonder sister from us to quickly. We didn't want to let go, but this song gives us strength knowing that she isfeeling no more pain and she doesn't want us to worry about her anymore. She is at peace. My love goes to my sister, and to all my sisters and brothers who are still with us.

    My brother passed away from cancer at the age of 40, May 29th 2002. His wife passed away in an accident at the age of 40, May 24th 2009. They were the love of each others lives and they are now together again
    This song was played at her funeral 2 weeks ago and the lyrics say it all. They have a little girl and this song fits our sadness and our faith to be with the Lord someday and all be together again.

    This song makes me cry so much. My mother has a type of lung disease and does not have the hairs inside her lungs that help get rid of the horrible stuff in your lungs like smoke. Everyday my mother is one step closer to dying and I am so frightened. I am only fifteen years old. Everytime I hear this song, it reminds me of something that has not happened yet and it scares me so much that everyday it's closer to happening.

    My mother passed away March 21 2009. It was not expected and I am still in such temendous pain. The first time I heard this song it reminded me so much of my mom. I can almost see her "flying up to heaven on the wings of angels". It gives me a sense of peace through all the pain of missing her. Thank you Alan for writing a song that touches people in a very special way.

    My niece just passed away at the age of 28 on 3-7-09, and my daughter who service in the us Navy lives in Japan and her name is Cissy. Cissy found this song and it ment the world to her it has helped her deal with the death of such a young lady at the age of 28. Because of my faith I know she is walking with Jesus and looking down saying don't worry about me. What a wonderful song it impacts our lives. God Bless and you Alan for helping so many people deal with the death of a young one.

    I was at work listening to the radio and when this song came on, I stopped what I was doing and the tears started rolling down my cheeks. My Mom was killed in a car accident on Feb. 13, 1996, and there isn't a day that has gone by that I don't love and miss her so much. This song just reminded me of my beautiful Mom, and how I will meet her in heaven one day. God Bless you for writing such a beautiful song.

    This song says it all. Everytime I hear it, it makes me think of a very close friend that passed on Feb 14, 2009, he was only 24 yrs old. It brings tears to my eyes when I hear it but makes me smile at the same time because I know that is exactly what he is saying with a smile on his face, is don't worry bout me. This song has helped so much for me. When I hear it its like he is singing it with me. This song helps me get thru each and every day. Thank you. This song means so much to me, you couldn't have written it at a better time its like it was written specifically for our situation. God Bless you.

    You know my nickname is "Sissy" & I have a tattoo on my right ankle that says it. But when I heard this it reminded me of my niece whom passed away on October 18, 1999. She was only 2 months and 18 days. So I related to this song so well & I know for a fact that she is walking with Jesus and on the wings of Angels. Wow how amazing is that. I have to say that your songs have such an impact on so many people that we can all relate to one way or another. May God bless you more in your music and you are a blessing.

    My mother passed away on Feb. 21, 2009 and after we finished planning her funeral arrangements and left, my sister got in her car, turned on the radio and Sissy's Song was playing, and the lyrics at that time were "I Flew up to heave on Angels Wings and I walk with Jesus and loves ones waiting and don't worry about me" we knew it was coming from mom, thank you Alan for writing a song our love ones can use to communicate with us still here on earth grieving for them.

    I love this song, I can't help but think of my mother who passed away, very suddenly on April 22, 2007. We never got to say goodbye to her because her passing was so sudden and unexpected. I remember being so angry at God and unable to find closure, and just feeling so lost and alone. This song gives me faith, because I know she is in heaven, walking with Jesus. It also reminds me of a young woman I knew, that went by the name Sissy, who also passed away very suddenly last year. She was only 32. She left behind a husband and 2 young children who I know miss her very much. Thank you Alan, for such a beautiful song, that anyone who has lost a loved one can relate to.
