let me go like Elijah when I go I don't want no tombstone above my head And I don't want no pinebox for my bed And I don't want anyone to say I'm dead. I don't want know one cryin' Or feeiln' sad Or standin' in the rain without their hat I wanna go happy- Imagine that Yeah, when I go- I wanna go. Just let me go- Lord, when I go I want to go like Elijah when I go I want to rise right up to the sky And ride white roses with fiery eyes Lord for my sins I apologize Just let me go- Lord when I go When my time comes for me to go Just let me go like Elijah.
Someday my time to die will come. When Chi Coltrane's first single, "Thunder and Lightning" made the US top 20 in 1972, it seemed like the auspicious start of a long and distinguished career. The timing was right, and the performer appeared to have everything going for her - she was a prodigious pianist, a skilled composer, a fine vocalist, and distinctly photogenic. The rest of the album displays a complete mastery and understanding of gospel ("Go Like Elijah"), as well music of both the Classical and Romantic periods ("The Wheel of Life"), and in addition, she comes up with a few hybrids of her own ("You Were My Friend"). Her vocals, alternatively tender, spirited, angry, and with a wonderful rs" quality, are at odds with the dreamy inertia of most mid-70s performers.

Yeah, when I go- I wanna go Just let me go- Lord, when I go I want to go like Elijah when I go I want to rise right up to the sky And ride white roses with fiery eyes Lord for my sins I apologize Just let me go- Lord when I go When my time comes for me to go Just. let me go like Elijah when I go I don& want no tombstone above my head And I don& want no pinebox for my bed And I don& want anyone to say I& dead
