River of jordan    



Louvin Bros, Ricky Scaggs version
Words and music: Grossman

RIVER OF JORDAN

        G         D          G
To the river of Jordan, our savior went one day
                           D               G
And we read that John the Baptist met him there
                             C
When John baptized Jesus in Jordan’s rushing waters
     G              D              G
The mighty power of God filled the air


CHORUS:
       
               echo
I’m on my way, (to the River of Jordan)
                     D           echo
I’m gonna wade right in, (in the rushing waters)
            G             all                    C
I’m going down (I’m going down to the River of Jordan)
             G          D          G    
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul


King Naaman was stricken with dreaded leprosy
And he sent for the man of God to pray
But Elisha said to Naaman, go dip yourself in Jordan
And let the cool water wash your spots away

2nd CHORUS
So he went right in (to the River of Jordan)
He went right in (in the rushing waters)
to dip himself (he dipped himself in the River of Jordan)
And the cool waters made him whole


The River of Jordan is many miles away
This mighty river I may never see
But I’ll find myself an altar, in an old fashioned church
My River of Jordan that will be
