Lyrics


People
keep on learnin'
Soldiers
keep on warrin'
World,
keep on turnin'
cause it won't be too long.
Powers
a-keep on lyin',
while your people
a-keep on dyin'
World,
keep on turnin',
cause it won't be too long.

Chorus:
I'm so darn glad He let me try it again,
'cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin.
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then.
Gonna keep on tryin' till I reach the highest ground.

Teachers,
a-keep on teachin'
Preachers,
keep on preachin',
World, keep on turnin',
'cause it won't be too long.
oh, no
Lovers,
a-keep on lovin'
while believers
keep on believin'.
Sleepers,
just stop sleepin'
'cause it won't be too long.
Oh, no!

Chorus

(Spoken) An' Stevie knows that, uh, no-body's gonna bring me down.
Till I reach the highest ground.
(Spoken) 'cause me 'n' Stevie, see, we're gonna be a sailin' on the funky sound
Till I reach the highest ground.
(Spoken) Bustin' out, an I'll break you out, 'cause I'm sailin' on.
Till I reach the highest ground
(Spoken)Just, uh, sailin' on sailin' on the higher ground
Till I reach the highest ground
