Recorded by Kitty Wells
James D. Vaughn – Mary Ethel Weiss
[G]I dreamed I had gone to that city
That city where never comes night
And I [C]saw the bright angels in [G]glory
I saw the fair mansions of [D7]light
I [G]gazed for long long years of rapture
On the face of my Savior so true
And I [C]sang with the seraphim [G]holy
Then I dreamed I [D7]searched Heaven for [G]you
I [C]dreamed I searched Heaven for [G]you
Searched vainly through Heaven for [D7]you
Oh [C]won’t you prepare to [G]meet me up there
Lest we should [D7]search Heaven for [G]you
I looked on both sides of the river
That flows through the city of God
I [C]searched through bright mansions [G]celestial
And streets of gold pavement I [D7]trod
The [G]faces of saints by the million
I scanned in my yearning to see
That [C]face I had cherished so [G]fondly
The face that had [D7]grown dear to [G]me

Who is Kitty Wells?
– Ellen Muriel Deason (August 30, 1919 – July 16, 2012), known professionally as Kitty Wells, was an American pioneering female country music singer. She broke down a barrier to women in country music with her 1952 hit recording “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels”, which also made her the first female country singer to top the U.S. country charts and turned her into the first female country superstar. â€œIt Wasnâ€™t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angelsâ€ would also be her first of several pop crossover hits. Wells is the only artist to be awarded top female vocalist awards for 14 consecutive years. Her chart-topping hits continued until the mid 1960s, paving the way for and inspiring a long list of female country singers who came to prominence in the 1960s.
Wells ranks as the sixth most successful female vocalist in the history of the Billboard country charts, according to historian Joel Whitburn’s book The Top 40 Country Hits. In 1976, she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. In 1991, Wells became the third country music artist, after Roy Acuff and Hank Williams, and the eighth woman to receive the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Wells’ success and influence on country music garnered her the title “Queen of Country Music”.
