Richard Jarboe


I'm in Heaven, but I got a Bad Knee


I'm in Heaven, but I got a bad knee
Heaven, but I got a bad knee
I'm in Heaven with my family
Heaven, but I got a bad knee.

You get a lot sun here in Heaven
Sometimes you get a lot of rain,
Whatever goes down here in Heaven
Runs smooth down Memory Lane.

I'm getting old here in Heaven
That's the way it was meant to be
It's been foretold here in Heaven
It's in the roots of the family tree.

Heaven's in the mind of those who live here
Why would Heaven lie?
Heaven's in the soul of those who live here
You can see it in the sky.
