LYRIC

By and By

By and by, by and by
By and by, by and by
Then we’ll know the reason why
By and by

By and by, by and by
By and by, by and by
Yeah we’ll know the reason why
By and by

Did you ever wanna hang your head and cry
‘Cause you had troubles and no one told you why
You better live before you die
Ain’t no answer in the sky
Many men have told us how
There’s an answer here and now
Yeah that day’s drawin’ nigh
Shout, “Hallelujah” to the sky
Then we’ll know the reason why
By and by

By and by, by and by
By and by, by and by
Yeah we’ll know the reason why
By and by

Let me tell you, the answer’s right at hand
Like a wind that sweeping over ev’ry land
You better hear the urgent call
There’s a chain that links us all
Deep inside of you and me
Waitin’ there to set us free
Yeah that day’s drawin’ nigh
Shout, “Hallelujah” to the sky
Then we’ll know the reason why
Or we’ll die
We gotta find the reason why
You and I
