Wicked Path Of Sin

Lyrics: Bill Monroe
Music: Bill Monroe

Played by Garcia with Old And In The Way in 1973. Listed in DeadBase as "Inside The Pearly Gates"

In this awful world of sorrow
In this wicked path of sin
Never thinking of tomorrow
Or what I'd lose in the end

I can hear (oh I can hear)
The joy bells ringing
Where my friends (where my friends)
The loved ones wait
I can hear(I can hear)
The angels singing
Just inside (just inside)
Those pearly gates

I can hear my saviour calling
Won't you come unto me
Wash away your sins forever
You will rest eternally


Now I'm safe with my Jesus
He will guide me on my way
I will sing his praise for ever
We'll meet in heaven some sweet day
