THE IMPERIALS lyrics - Old Gospel Ship

THE IMPERIALS
"Old Gospel Ship"

I'm gonna take a trip in that good old gospel ship
I'm going far beyond the sky
I'm gonna shout, shout and sing until all heaven rings
When I bid this old world goodbye

I have good news to bring and that is why I sing
All my joy with you I'd like to share
I'm gonna take a trip in that good old gospel ship
I wanna go sailing through the air

I'm gonna take a trip in that good old gospel ship
I'm going far beyond the sky
I'm gonna shout, shout and sing until all heaven rings
When I bid this old world goodbye, goodbye

Oh, I can scarcely wait, I know I don't wanna be late
I want to spend all my time in prayer
When my ship comes in, I'm gonna leave this old world of sin
I got to go sailing through the air

I'm gonna take a trip in that good old gospel ship
I'm going far beyond the sky
I'm gonna shout, shout and sing until all heaven rings
When I bid this old world goodbye, goodbye

I'm gonna take a trip in that good old gospel ship
I'm going far beyond the sky
I'm gonna shout, shout and sing until all heaven rings
When I bid this old world goodbye, goodbye

I'm gonna take a trip in that good old gospel ship
