I wanna go where the thunder don't roar, there where trouble winds don't blow, I wanna go where the rain don't pour when I leave this world to return no more.  I just wanna go where the thunder don't roar, there where trouble winds don't blow, I wanna go where the rain don't pour when I leave this world to return no more.
