I Want To Hear Little David Play

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carter Family: Someday when life on earth is done
And I face the setting sun
June: I want to hear (I want to hear)
June: Little David play (little David play)

Carter Family: I want to hear the band play on
In that wondrous land of song
June: Yes, I want to hear (yes, I want to hear)
Little David play (little David play)

Mother Maybelle: I want to hear (I want to hear)
Mother Maybelle: Little David play (little David play)
All: I want to hear him play his harp someday

Mother Maybelle: I want to see (I want to see)
Mother Maybelle: The saints of old (the saints of old)
All: And when I pass the pearly gates
I want to hear little David play

Carter Family:
That sun is slowly singing on
Toward that happy land of song
June: Where we shall hear (where we shall hear)
June: Little David play (little David play)

Carter Family: All cares and troubles left behind
Near to happiness we’ll find
June: For we all can hear little David play

Mother Maybelle: I want to hear (I want to hear)
Mother Maybelle: Little David play (little David play)
All: I want to hear him play his harp someday

Mother Maybelle: I want to see (I want to see)
Mother Maybelle: The saints of old (the saints of old)
All: And when I pass the pearly gates I want to hear little David play
