Johnny Cash – Wayfaring Stranger lyrics

[Verse 1]
I’m a poor wayfaring stranger
While traveling thru this world of woe
Yet there’s no sickness, toil, nor danger
In that fair land to which I go

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m going there to see my Father
I’m going there no more to roam

[Chorus]
I’m only going over Jordan
I’m only going over home

[Verse 2]
I know dark clouds will hang ’round me,
I know my way is rough and steep
Yet beauteous fields lie just before me
Where God’s redeemed their vigils keep

[Pre-Chorus]
I’m going there to see my mother
She said she’d meet me when I come

[Chorus] x2
I’m only going over Jordan
I’m only going over home

I’m only going over home
