Higher Ground
Stevie Wonder Lyrics


People keep on learnin'
Soldiers keep on warrin'
World keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long

Powers keep on lyin'
While your people keep on dyin'
World keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long
I'm so darn glad he let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
'Til I reach my highest ground

Teachers keep on teachin'
Preachers keep on preachin'
World keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long

Oh no
Lovers keep on lovin'
Believers keep on believin'
Sleepers just stop sleepin'
'Cause it won't be too long

Oh no
I'm so glad that he let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin'
'Til I reach my highest ground
Woo
'Til I reach my highest ground

No one's gonna bring me down
Oh no
'Til I reach my highest ground
Don't you let nobody bring you down (they'll sure 'nough try)
God is gonna show you

Pick your god, Is it Stevie, Iggy Pop as the arch angel Gabriel. A crazy amount of musical genius comes from that town.

Everyone looking for God, they never check Detroit

Try Louis Cole 'Dead inside shuffle' as à worthy successor ( he also plays it all )

Stevie is one of the few people on the PLANET who need to be granted immortality

Hopefully, he will receive the blessing of eternal life in Heaven. And, in the same hope, our society would memorialize him, and his acts given to good, and to God.
