OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Goin' up to the Spirit in the sky
That's where I wanna go when I die

Left allemande, and you dosado your own
Left allemande and weave the ring
Goin' up to the Spirit in the sky
Swing your girl and promenade I cry
When I die and they lay me to rest
I want to go to the place that's the best


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads go right & left thru, roll her away
Star thru and dosado I say
Swing thru, boy run right
Bend the line, a right & left thru
Flutter wheel all around, slide thru and swing
Swing your girl and promenade that ring
When I die and they lay me to rest
I want to go to the place that's the best

Spirit In The Sky
 
 

When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best
When I lay me down to die
Goin' up to the spirit in the sky

Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best

Prepare yourself you know it's a must
Got to have a friend in Jesus
So you know that when you die
He's gonna recommend you
To the spirit in the sky

Goin' up to the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best

Never been a sinner, I never sinned
I got a friend in Jesus
So you know that when I die
He's gonna set me up with
The spirit in the sky

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best

Oh set me up with the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
I'm gonna go to the place that's the best

Goin' on up to the spirit in the sky
That's where I'm gonna go when I die
When I die and they lay me to rest
Gonna go to the place that's the best
Go to the place that's the best
Go to the place that's the best
Go to the place that's the best

Lyrics by Norman Greenbaum.
