The First Time I Heard About Heaven
Recorded by The Bluegrass Cardinals
Written by Dottie Rambo

D7 G D7 G
The first time I heard about heaven
D7 G
Momma was smiling and rockin' my cradle and singin'
Won't it be wonderful there
C G Em
I can still see her happy tears a-fallin'
G C G D7
And I can still hear my mother in prayer

G D7 G
Now if the walls are not of jasper
D7 G G7
And if the streets are not gold
If my mansion should just be a cabin
A7 D7
As long as it's heaven it's home

G D7 G
The only thing my eyes long to vision
B7 C G
The only thing my heart needs to know
C G Em
Is that somewhere on the hills of Mount Zion
The King is sittin' high on His throne
G C G D7
The King is sittin' high on His throne

G D7 G
Now if there is no marriage supper
D7 G
No gathering of millions to feast at the table no singin'
Saved by His marvelous grace
C G Em
So my soul would be fed and contented
G C G D7
If my eyes should behold His sweet face

Repeat 2,3
