I Belong To Heaven

lyrics

When I was a gambler, I gambled all around
When I quit my gambling ways I got a job in town
But I am not a miner for the things that cannot be
I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me

The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me
I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me

When I met my true love, I knew she loved me too
We made each other promises like lovers often do
But I am not a miner for the things that cannot be
I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me

The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me
I know it every time my darlin’ sits upon my knee
And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be
I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me

I’ve had my share of troubles and I cry my share of tears
But I believe my trials are like my own souveneers
And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be
I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me

The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me
As far as I can wander, as far as I can see
And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be
I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me

The world belongs to me, boys, the world belongs to me
The breezes in the branches and the gales upon the sea
And I am not a miner for the things that cannot be
I belong to Heaven and the world belongs to me
