My Mother is trying to find a song titled "I'll Be Gone"

Post by Guest » Mon Jan 16, 2012 9:13 pm

I've been trying to find (for 2 days now) the music and lyrics to a song titled, "I'll Be Gone" - My Mother says that words are as follows: This old world begins to rock; infidels and skeptics mock; there's a time of awful anguish coming on...the chorus is I'll be gone; I'll be gone; when the tribulation enters I'll be gone... Can anyone help with this? I found and purchased this song and music last night; it was the wrong song, however, and Dwight Yoakam sings about leaving his girlfriend!! Help.

Found it. Go to the link given below, and look for the title "The Tribulation". Next to it, in parentheses, you'll see "I'll be gone", as an alternative title. Hope you haven't given up on finding it. It's a great song.

Due to the fact that my brother needed the words to this song at church recently and we could not find them ANYWHERE on the internet, I am taking the time to share them in case he gets called on and doesn't have his music again.

I'll Be Gone
When this world begins to rock, infidels and skeptics mock,
There's an awful time of anguish coming on.
Oh, what groans and bitter pain, when the anti-Christ shall reign,
When the tribulation enters, I'll be gone.
Chorus:
I'll be gone! Yes, I'll be gone.
When the tribulation enters, I'll be gone.
Soon the trumpet loud will sound, with a shout I'll leave the ground.
When the tribulation enters, I'll be gone.

When the earth quakes everywhere, and the world is in despair,
There are pestilences and famine all around.
Christ is coming soon to claim, all who suffer for His name.
When the tribulation enters, I'll be gone.

Then the anti-Christ shall reign, all must have his mark or name,
For without it you can neither sell nor buy.
Marvelous wonders he will do, call down fire from Heaven, too.
It is either worship him, or you must die. But...

Foolish virgins then will find, they have here been left behind.,
With their empty vessels and their lamps so dim.
They awoke themselves to try, for their lamps some oil to buy.
But the Bridgegroom's come, and we have gone with Him.

But, we'll be back. Yes, we'll be back.
When the tribulation's over, we'll be back.
We may go just any day, but we're coming back to stay.
When the tribulation's over, we'll be back.

*I don't know how accurate these are, I just copied whatever my Dad typed out years ago.* This is the version Bro. Earl Hughes used to sing. :)

This song is formally titled I'll Be Gone and was written by Pastor Buck Ledford, of Maryville, TN and an S. McGinnis. I have not been able to identify McGinnis. The lyrics above match Ledford's singing exactly.
