How Far Is Heaven? (Eddie Coffey)

A little girl was waiting for her daddy one day,
It was time to meet him, and she heard her mommy say:
Come to mommy, darling, please do not cry,
Daddy's gone to heaven away up in the sky.

How far is heaven? When can I go
To see my daddy? He's there I know;
How far is heaven? Let's go tonight,
I want my daddy to hold me tight.

He was gone so suddenly, I could not say goodbye,
I know that he's in heaven, we'll meet him by-and-by;
The little girl she trembled, her tears she could not hide,
She looked up towards heaven, and then she replied:

How far is heaven? When can I go
To see my daddy? He's there I know;
How far is heaven? Let's go tonight,
I want my daddy to hold me tight.

I want my daddy to hold me tight.
