Music in the Morning No. 243 – Iris Dement

 

Welcome, Iris, to this morning’s music slot!  You’ve been here before – Sunday Morning Coffee – and so you’re no stranger.  Enjoy yourself because we’re going to enjoy listening.

 

Iris Dement                                                  There’s A Whole Lot of Heaven

There’s a whole lot of heaven in Iris and her music!

There’s a Whole Lot of Heaven

There’s a lot of people talking bout getting in a glory land way
They’re walking straight and narrow cause they’re trying to get to heaven some day
But I’ve been saved by the love of the people who’re living right here
There’s a whole lot of heaven shining in this river of tears

We don’t got a prophet who can tell us what the future’s gonna hold
We only got each other and the love we carry in our soul
‘Cause this world’s full of trouble; exactly what was never quite clear
There’s still a whole lot of heaven shining in this river of tears

There’s a whole lot of heaven shining in this river of tears
If you pull back those curtains, those diamonds appear
You can have your streets of gold if you want ‘em, he mentions so dear
I'll take the whole lot of heaven shining in this river of tears

This life that we’re living is like a ship that don’t wanna be sailed
I’m awake this morning thinking I could buckle ‘neath the weight of my own fears
It’s a pain, it’s a strain, it’s a struggle that I burst of fear
There’s a whole lot of heaven shining in this river of tears

There’s a whole lot of heaven shining in this river of tears
If you pull back the curtain, those diamonds appear
You could have your streets of gold, if you really wanna, your magic so dear
But I'll take the whole lot of heaven that's shining, I'll take the whole lot of heaven that's shining
I'll take the whole lot of heaven that's shining in this river of tears
