People
Keep on learnin'
Soldiers
Keep on warrin'
World
Keep on turnin'
Cause it won't be too long
Powers
Keep on lyin'
While your people
Keep on dyin'
World
Keep on turnin'
Cause it won't be too long

I'm so darn glad He let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin' till I reach the highest ground.

Teachers
Keep on teachin'
Preachers
Keep on preachin'
World
Keep on turnin'
'Cause it won't be too long
Oh no
Lovers
Keep on lovin'
While believers
Keep on believin'
Sleepers
Just stop sleepin'
'Cause it won't be too long
Oh no

I'm so darn glad He let me try it again
'Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin' till I reach the highest ground

And Stevie knows that, uh, nobody's gonna bring me down
Till I reach the highest ground.
'Cause me 'n' Stevie, see, we're gonna be a sailin' on the funky sound
Till I reach the highest ground.
Bustin' out, and I'll break you out, 'cause I'm sailin' on
Till I reach the highest ground
Just, uh, sailin' on, sailin' on the higher ground
Till I reach the highest ground
This song is from the album "Mother's Milk", "Greatest Hits" and "What Hits!?".
