Far Side Banks of Jordan (Cash Johnny)

I believe my steps are growing wearier each day Still I've got a journey on my mind Lures of this old world have ceased to make me want to stay and my one regret is leaving you behind If it proves to be his will that I'm the first to go And some how I've a feeling it will be When it comes time to travel likewise don't feel lost For I will be the first one that you'll see And I'll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan I'll be waiting drawing pictures in the sand And when I see you coming I will rise up with a shout! And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand Through this life we've laboured hard to earn our meager fare It's brought us trembling hands and failing eyes I'll just rest here on this shore and turn my eyes away And then you'll come then we'll see paradise
