Thank you, my friend CW5 Jack Cardwell for posting the music video of Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris performing a wonderful cover of the classic southern gospel song "Farther Along"

Here is an early duet
Early Patti Page
Patti Page & Rex Allen Farther Along (1949).

"Farther Along" disputed origin [The oldest known print edition is in the 1911 hymnal Select Hymns for Christian Worship and General Gospel Service; its only attribution is "Arr. B. E. W.", referring to the hymnal editor Barney Elliott Warren]
"Tempted and tried we're oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long
While there are others living about us
Never molested though in the wrong

Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We'll understand it all by and by

When death has come and taken our loved ones
It leaves our home so lonely and drear
And then do we wonder why others prosper
Living so wicked year after year

[Repeat Chorus]

When we see Jesus coming in glory
When he comes down from his home in the sky
Then we shall meet him in that bright mansion
We'll understand it all by and by

[Repeat Chorus]
Yeah we'll understand it all by and by"
