Using lettered notes like this could be called CHEATING, I suppose.  What helps my new learners is really the finger numbers.

This joyful hymn is actually about death, and what happens afterward.

No more shadows, but the bright gladness of looking forward to meeting again friends and family at that home on God's celestial shore...

With its promise of hope and everlasting joy, it is a hymn suitable for a funeral.

I'll Fly Away was the favorite hymn of my young friend Gabrielle, and at her memorial service, friends and family sang this song, plus another that can be found on a page dedicated to her.

Here is a harmonized version:

I'll Fly Away is easy even for young fiddlers to play, and the harmony, whether for singers or instrumentalists, is fairly predictable, but well-matched to the melody.

Two fiddles playing this as a duet sound great together, and one of my younger vocal students learned the harmony without much of a struggle.
