"Do Lord"

       
  1. When chilly winds blow from the North, I've got to go;
When chilly winds blow from the North, I've got to go;
When chilly winds blow from the North, I've got to go;
Look away beyond the blue.

    Refrain:  
    Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me;
Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me;
Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me;
Look away beyond the blue.
 
 
2.
I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun;
I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun;
I've got a home in glory land that outshines the sun;
Look away beyond the blue.

    Refrain:  
    Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me;
Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me;
Do Lord, oh do Lord, oh do remember me;
Look away beyond the blue.
