Let The Mystery Be chords - Iris Dement

Iris Dement Lyrics




G                      C                                D
Everybody's wonderin' what and where they all came from.
G                      C                                                     D
Everybody’s worryin' 'bout where they're gonna go 
when the whole thing's done.
G                                 C                              G                    C
But no one knows for certain and so it's all the same to me.
G                  D                   G
I think I'll just let the mystery be.


Some say once you're gone you're gone forever, 
and some say you're gonna come back.
Some say you rest in the arms of the Savior 
if in sinful ways you lack.
Some say that they're comin' back in a garden, 
bunch of carrots and little sweet peas.
I think I'll just let the mystery be.

Chorus 

Instrumental break.

Some say they're goin' to a place called Glory
 and I ain't saying it ain't a fact.
But I've heard that I'm on the road to purgatory 
and I don't like the sound of that.
Well, I believe in love and I live my life accordingly.
But I choose to let the mystery be.

Chorus
