"UP THERE"

Verse 1
Well, I was out shoot'in hoops with my neighbor -
When a phone call came from L. A.,
It was Uncle Rick, said his house had been hit, -
He was sure it was the killer quake.
He asked if he could come on over, -
I said, "Sure, you're welcome to stay,
And for your 13 kids, we can make bunk beds,
In the dining room and in the hallway."

Verse 2
When I told the news to my neighbor, -
And asked to use his saw and some paint,
He just shook his head, and then he said, -
"You'll be broke in just a matter of days."
I said, "Life is more than money, -
Plus, I don't have that much any--way.
I'll let God worry 'bout to--morrow,
And just trust Him for to--day."
'Cause …

Chorus 1
Up There the sun is always shining,
- Brighter than the clouds of to--day.
Up There the sun is always shining,
More than ever before,
We all need a little more faith.

Verse 3
From the banks of the Mississippi,
Came a plea from cousin Fred. He said,
"The river's overflowed, we've no place to go,
We're all livin' on Grandma's shed."
I said, "Fred, don't worry 'bout sinkin',
Don't take to drinkin', there's a better way.
Though your things are soggy, and the outlook's foggy,
There's the promise of a better day."
'Cause …

Chorus 2
Up There the sun is always shining,
- Brighter than the clouds of to--day, ye--ah
Up There the sun is always shining
And more than - ever before,
We all need a little more faith. -

Bridge
We're afraid of livin', afraid of dyin'
Of cancer or cholesterol,
Becoming high-strung, stressed-out creatures,
Wondering if we're going to make it at all.
This world, my friend, is just a tiny little piece of the pie,
The bigger piece is waiting just beyond your cloudy sky.

Chorus 3
Up There, ----
Brighter than the clouds of to--day.
Up There ---
There's so much in store, don't you worry any more,
Up There
The sun is shining al--ways. --
