When I go don't cry for me, in my Father's arms I'll be
The wounds this world left on my soul will all be healed and I'll be whole.
Sun and moon will be replaced with the light of Jesus' face
And I will not be ashamed, for my Savior knows my name
It don't matter where you bury me, I'll be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay, All my tears be washed away.
Gold and silver blind the eye, temporary riches lie
Come and eat from heaven's store, come and drink and thirst no more
It don't matter where you bury me, I'l be home and I'll be free
It don't matter where I lay, All my tears be washed away
So weep not for me my friends, when my time below does end
For my life belongs to Him, who will raise the dead again.
It don't matter where you bury me, 'cause I'll be home and I'll be free.
It don't matter where I lay, all my tears be washed away
OOoh, it don't matter.....OOooh, it don't matter

Behind the Song:
"This song was written by Mark Byrd and Julie Miller. More of a modern day hymn, all the aspects of this song were written about such a chronic pain in their life. We were really scared to cover this because we wanted to really honor what this song was. Julie’s husband, Buddy Miller came in the studio and we sat him down and we played it to him and he loved it, which calmed our fears a bit." - Dan Haseltine (Jars Of Clay)
