I'll Fly Away
Chords, Lyrics, & Sheet Music for Piano

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'll Fly Away chords and lyrics and piano sheet music, a beautiful new arrangement!

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!

The trick to making the melody move along quickly is the open, flowing left hand chords.   See the close-up of page one, below:


The left hand is playing octaves and tenths, for the most part, and doing a bit of "pivoting" on the second and fourth notes in the pattern.  Not heavy-sounding, and the faster you can play it, the faster the song can go!

Here is page two:

This is not a particularly EASY piano arrangement... just effective and fun!

If you need something easier, try one of the lead sheets at my other site, Music-for-Music-Teachers.com:
