It Won't Be Very Long
Willie Nelson

It Won't Be Very Long

Mama let me bring your old harmonica to you
I'll get out my guitar and we'll play a song or two
We'll let the music take us back to when I was a kid
Take our minds of everything in the way it always did

We'll play "You Are My Sunshine"; we'll do "Amazing Grace"
We'll stop and catch our breath and let our laughter fill this place
And it's too bad with all the family Dad's not here to play along
We'll get back together and it won't be very long

Will the circle be unbroken? You always said it would
And we'll all meet again someday and feel it like we should
When the room is cold up yonder and tawnyoo is no more
We'll be shoutin' and a singin' precious memories to the Lord

And we'll play "You Are My Sunshine" and do "Amazing Grace"
And stop and catch our breath and let our laughter fill this place
With all the family, Dad will be right there to play along
When we get back together and it won't be very long

When we get back together and it won't be very long
