my lyricsbox
I dreamed I saw Jesus last night
seated on a mountain in the moonlight
His hands held a key to a cabin
that cabin I'd dreamed of all my life.

Money makes the rules we have to live by
A home is just a place they send the bills
God knows why we work and what we pray for
So He's building me a cabin in the hills.

Who knows He might be finished in the morning
So I lie awake and take no sleeping pills
God knows I'm not happy in a mansion
So He's building me a cabin in the hills.

I live my lonesome life down in a valley
With the factories, the rivers, and the mills
Sometimes I can almost hear his hammer
'Cause he's building me a cabin in the hills.

Someone has to keep the home fire burning
So I sweat and get the harvest in the field.

Life on earth won't be the same hereafter
So he's building me a cabin in the hills.
I live my lonesome life down in a valley
With the factories, the rivers and the mills.

Sometimes I can almost hear His hammer
'cause He's building me a cabin in the hills.
He's building me a cabin in the hills.
This song is from the album "Award Winning Gospel Hits" and "Cabin In The Hills".
