Lyrics:
 

Yes, Im gonna walk on that milky white way, oh Lord, some of these days
Well, I'm gonna walk that milky white way some of these days, well, well, well, well
I'm gonna walk up and take my stand, I'm gonna join that Christian band
That's when you walk on that milky white way, oh Lord, some of these days

I'm gonna tell my mother howdy, howdy, howdy when I get home
Yes, Im gonna tell my mother howdy when I get home, well, well, well, well
I'm gonna shake my mother's hand, I will shake her hands that day
That's when we walk on that milky white way, oh Lord some of these days

I'm gonna meet God the father and God the son
Yes, Im gonna meet God the father and God the son, well, well, well, well
I'm gonna sit down and tellEm my troubles about the world that I just came from
That's when we walk on that milky white way, o
h Lord, some of these days
