ETERNITY
(Rhodes - Lile)
JACK RHODES & HIS LONE STAR BUDDIES (COLUMBIA 20932, 1952)
Featuring Jimmy Johnson

Now listen then on this fine morning
Before we start the song
Just don't forget that life is short
And eternity is long
I don't know much about atomic bom
Or anything like that
But when it comes to fighting sin
I think that I stand pat

Eternity... eternity
Eternity is mighty long
And life is mighty short

Just add up all of the things you done
And tell me what you've got
Just git yourself a-going
Before Gabriel blows his horn
For life is mighty mighty short
And eternity is long

Yes, life is short, make no mistake
And eternity is long
But the combination is not so bad
When you don't do too much wrong
So when you gets a glory roll
And afraid you'll lose the race
Just depends upon your good deeds here
And the Lord that made them great

Eternity... eternity
Eternity is mighty long
And life is mighty short

Just add up all of the things you done
And tell me what you've got
Just git yourself to going
Before Gabriel blows his horn
For life is mighty short my friends
And eternity is long

They say the world is one big stage
With actors in the play
So before they drops the curtain
You'd better kneel and pray
Now times ain't getting no better
And it's something you must know
That charity needs a lot of help
And this old preacher needs some dough

Eternity... eternity
Eternity is mighty long
And life is mighty short

Just add up all of the things you done
And tell me what you've got
Just git yourself to going
Before Gabriel blows his horn
For life is mighty short my friends
And eternity is long
