They Won't Go When I Go No more lying friends Wanting tragic ends Though they do pretend They won't go when I go All those bleeding hearts With sorrows to impart Were right here from the start And they won't go when I go And I'll go where I've longed To go so long Away from tears Gone from painful cries Away from saddened eyes Along with him I'll bide Because they won't go when I go Big men feeling small Weak ones standing tall I will watch them fall They won't go when I go And I'll go where I've longed To go so long Away from tears Unclean minds mislead the pure The innocent will leave for sure For them there is a resting place People sinning just for fun They will never see the sun For they can never show their faces There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner Who will take more than he will give He ain't hardly gonna give The greed of man will be Far away from me And my soul will be free They won't go when I go Since my soul conceived All that I believe The kingdom I will see 'Cause they won't go when I go When I go Where I'll go No one can keep me From my destiny.

I agree totally that musically Stevie was better than MJ, but come on, MJ was much better than an OK singer.

This song was originally conceived following Stevie's near-fatal car crash in August 1973 in NC. His friend Yvonne Wright (and Syreeta's sister) wrote the lyrics.
