“When You Get to Heaven” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Andru Bemis

When I die, all I can say is I tried, I tried, I tried so hard. When I die, all I can say is I tried.

  1. When you get to heaven won’t you put a good word in for me? God knows I need all the help I can get. When you get your mansion, will you save a room for me, even though I ain’t there yet? Cause I’m on my way, every day I get a little bit closer to you, my friend. So when you get to heaven, will you put a good word in for me
  2. When you see Saint Peter please tell him that I’m on my way, even though I screw it up every day. When you see Saint Peter, please ask him to be easy on me; I’ve been the best man that I can be. Cause I’m on my way, every day I get a little bit closer to you, my friend. So when you see Saint Peter, please ask him to be easy on me
