River Jordan lyrics

River Jordan

We break our backs for the master's pleasure
Just waitin' for the sweet old by and by
Singin' "Go Down Moses" at the levee
Till we lay our burden down and die
But they say there's a new wind blowin'
Down by the mighty Mississippi dressed in blue
Shakin' loose these chains that bind me
Till this endless night is finally through
... So now
Meet me by the River Jordan
Knee-deep in a risin' tide
We will climb aboard that boat called freedom
And we'll all sail over to the other side
Sail on
Just sail, sail on
Sail on over to the other side
Sail, sail on
Just sail on
Just sail on over to the other side
Meet me by the River Jordan
Knee-deep in a risin' tide
We'll climb aboard that boat called freedom
And we'll all sail on over to the other side
We'll be singin' Halleluja
When this mis'ry sure 'nough be passed
We'll be singin' Halleluja
Halleluja, we are now free at last
Hold on... Hold on
When you live in the east of Eden you've
Got to pray
That you'll find yourself in paradise one day
Meet me by the River Jordan
Knee-deep in a risin' tide
We'll climb aboard that boat called freedom
And we'll all sail on over to the other side
Meet me by the River Jordan
Knee-deep in a risin' tide
We'll climb aboard that boat called freedom
And we'll sail right on over to the other side
We'll be singin' Halleluja
When this mis'ry sure 'nough be passed
We'll be singin' Halleluja
Halleluja, we are now free at last
Hold on ... Hold on
When you live in the East of Eden you've
Got to pray
That you'll find yourself in paradise one day
Meet me by the River Jordan
Knee-deep in a risin' tide
We'll climb aboard that boat called freedom
And we'll all sail right on over to the
Other side.
