          You may ask me where I'm headed; you may ask me where I'm bound.
          Well, I'm going to a country 'cross the sea.  ('cross the sea)
          And I know I'll have a mansion, and I know I'll have a crown
          Well, I'm bound for the Kingdom of the free.  (of the free.)

            Chorus
            Yes, I'm bound for the Kingdom of the blessed and the free;
            And my Jesus soon is coming after me.   (after me.)
            There is nothing to compare with the glory over there,
            Yes, I'm bound for the Kingdom of the free  (of the free.)

          Well, I'm going to a country where they say we'll never die;
          "Twill be endless joy and glory there for me.  (there for me.)
          Yes, I know I'll live forever in that city in the sky.
          Well, I'm bound for the Kingdom of the free.  (of the free.)

            Chorus

            There is nothing to compare with the glory over there,
            Yes, I'm bound for the Kingdom of the free  (of the free.)
