How Far is Heaven

How Far is Heaven
(Tillman Franks and Jimmie Davis)

[Bb] A little girl was waiting for her daddy one [F] day
It was time to meet him when she heard her mommy [Bb] say
Come to mama darling, please do not [Eb] cry
Daddy's gone to [Bb] heaven [F] way up in the [Bb] sky.

[Bb] How Far Is [Eb] Heaven, when can I [Bb] go
To see my [F] daddy, he's there I [Bb] know
How Far Is [Eb] Heaven, let's go to-[Bb] night
I want my [F] daddy to hold me [Bb] tight.

He was called so suddenly and could not say goodbye
I know that he's in heaven, we'll meet him by and by
The little girl trembled, her tears she could not hide
She looked up towards heaven and then she replied.
