Spirit in the Sky
Norman Greenbaum Lyrics


When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky

Goin' up to the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
That's where I'm gonna go when I die (when I die)
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best

Prepare yourself you know it's a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He's gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)

Oh he'll recommend you to the spirit in the sky
That's where you're gonna go when you die (when you die)
When you die and they lay you to rest
You're gonna go to the place that's the best

Never been a sinner, I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He's gonna set me up
with the spirit in the sky

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
That's where I'm gonna go when I die (when I die)
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best
Go to the place that's the best

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
That's where I'm gonna go when I die (when I die)
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best
Prepare yourself you know it's a must
Gotta have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He's gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
Oh he'll recommend you to the spirit in the sky
That's where you're gonna go when you die (when you die)
When you die and they lay you to rest
You're gonna go to the place that's the best
Never been a sinner, I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He's gonna set me up
with the spirit in the sky
Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
That's where I'm gonna go when I die (when I die)
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best
Go to the place that's the best



Matthew Knickle

In Christ I died and they laid me to rest
Now I live in the place that's the best
Jesus laid me down to die
Now I'm flying up with the spirit in the sky
Flyin up with the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
That's where I'm gonna be, since I've died
Staying here just stuck in his rest
Don't you know it's the place that's the best?
Prepare yourself to be a lush...
Cause you've got a friend in Jesus
So you know that since you've died
He already recommends you
To the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)
Oh He Joined you to the spirit in the sky
That's where you're gonna flow since you've died (all have died)
You've already died and He's laid you to rest
You're gonna feel the place that's the best!
Never been a sinner, I never sin
My life is hid Jesus
So you know that since ONE has died
Absolutely positively all of us have died
In the spirit in the sky
He set us up with the spirit in the sky (spirit in the sky)

My mother died tonight after a long fight with breast cancer. This was one of her favorite songs and I remember growing up she would always play this and dance around the kitchen. I miss her a lot but remembering her dancing around to this brings a smile to my face.

Jan Russ

So many here are reeling from the loss of their mother's... including me. Mothers are angels on earth till they leave for their heavenly home. They wouldn't want us to be sad... so we have to try and hold on to the beautiful memories. God bless us all!

DiamondEyes

Losing a parent is devastating. Hold on to the happy memories. God bless.

I flew helicopters in Vietnam and when this song came on the Armed Forces Radio station while we were flying I would keep in the beat with the pedals, which made the aircraft nose turn right and left.. I still love this song and want it played at my funeral as I hope to be with Jesus then.
