I'll Fly Away chords & lyrics & piano sheet music - a new arrangement for piano, in the keys of G and F.
You have never heard this satisfying arrangement before - very pretty and full of energy! I always loved the lyrics of this song, but never had seen a piano arrangement that I liked to play.
I always believed this song sounded best on guitar, and that pianists should just leave it alone. With the usual church hymnal arrangement, this is a stodgy and lame-sounding song, not joyful and triumphant like it should be.
But I was asked to play "I'll Fly Away" for a memorial service recently, and decided I was going to FIX that impossible arrangement.
Success! I never liked to play this song before, and now I do!

Hi, I'm Dana! (Say that like "Anna".) I'm the owner of Music-for-Music-Teachers.com, and this newer site, SingTheBibleStory.com.
Like some of you, I've been playing the piano since early childhood, and have added a few other instruments along the way, plus an interest in arranging and composing music.
I also happen to love the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Christian worldview that portrays The Great War in the heavens, in which we here on earth are destined to be a part.
