Over The Next Hill (We'll Be Home) Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

By the way the land is layin
I think Id be safe in sayin
That over the next hill well be home

Its a straight and narrow highway
No detours and no byways
And over the next hill well be home

From the prophets Ive been hearin
I would say the end is nearin
For I see familiar landmarks all along

By the dreams that Ive been dreamin
There will come a great redeemin
And over the next hill well be home

By the turn the tide is takin'
I would say theres no mistakin
That over the next hill well be home

Theres a place that we are nearin
That so many have been fearin
And over the next hill well be home

When we get there were all hopin
That well find the gate is open
And therell be a refuge from the comin storm

For the ways been long and weary
But at last the end is nearin
And over the next hill well be home
