STEAL AWAY

A long time ago in Pennsylvania
Lights turned out time to go to sleep
Ringing through the winter darkness
Gospel songs sung clear and deep
"Steal away, to Jesus"
Sang the man with the big bass voice
Steal away, all the way home
Sang the man to the two little boys

"I ain't got long to stay here"
Didn't get than then
So little I knew
"I ain't got long to stay here"
I sing that again
And I know it's true

"Steal away, to Jesus"
That's my Dad, putting me to bed
"Steal away, all the way home"
And that lonesome sound is still in my head

"I ain't got long to stay here"
Didn't get than then
So little I knew
"I ain't got long to stay here"
I sing that again
And I know it's true

And a long time from now when my race is ending
Maybe you'll sing that song for me
Sing it through the winter darkness
As by and by my soul slips free

"Steal away, to Jesus"
That's my Dad, putting me to bed
"Steal away, all the way home"
That lonesome sound is still in my head
That lonesome sound is still in my head
