ELTON JOHN - I've Got 2 Wings lyrics

rate me


I am the elder Utah Smith

I've got 2 wings to fly

They may be made of paper

They may neva reach the sky

But I believe in mercy

I believe that man is good

And if they want 2 wings like me

There's a chance they could

(Verse 2)

I am the elder Utah Smith

I was born in Cedar Grove

That's in Louisiana

On a dirt-poor stretch of road

I found the callin' early

Gave birth to righteous words

And in a tent around the South

I took my sonic church


I was a light for the livin'

And I spoke of peace and luv

With 2 wings and my old Gibson

I bought blessings from above

I was here and I was gone

Just a heartbeat from the past

But I went from paper wings

To the real thing at last

(Verse 3)

I am the elder Utah Smith

I take all as they are

I was the first man of the cloth

To blacken a guitar

Luv was my redeemer

I felt it from the start

The Holy Ghost was channeled

Through the sound of my guitar


(Verse 4)

Been a long time in the ground

Unmarked is my grave

But I reside elsewhere these days

Thanks to souls I've saved

I traveled far, I traveled wide

Three quarts for the Lord

Till one day he called me home

To claim his great reward
