VERSE 1:
D5
I am a poor wayfaring stranger
          G5                    D5
Travelin' through this world of woe

There is no sickness, toil nor danger
             G5              D5
In that fair land to which I go

CHORUS:
D5
I'm goin' home to see my mother
          G5              D5
I'm goin' home no more to roam

I am just goin' over Jordan
          G5         D5
I am just goin' over home

BREAK: Fiddle(s) and Mandolin improvisation

D5

VERSE 2:
I know dark clouds will hover o'er me
I know my pathway is rough and steep
But golden fields lie out before me
Where weary eyes no more will weep

CHORUS
I'm goin' home to see my father
I'm goin' home no more to roam
I am just goin' over Jordan
I am just goin' over home

BREAK

VERSE 3:
I'll soon be free from every trial
This form shall rest beneath the stars
I'll drop the cross of self-denial
And enter in that home with God

CHORUS
I'm goin' home to see my Savior
I'm goin' home no more to roam
I am just goin' over Jordan
I am just goin' over home
