I'm just a poor, wayfaring stranger
I'm trafvelin through this world of war
There ain't no sickness, toil nor danger
In every land to which I go

I'm goin home to see my mother
I'm goin home no more to roam
I'm just a goin over Jordan
I'm just a goin over home

I know dark clouds gonna gather round me
I know my path is rough and steep
Yet oil fields lay out before me
When weary eyes no more will be

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

I'll soon be free from earthly trials
My bones will rest in the old church yard
I'll share the cross of self denile
and enter in that house of God

I'm goin home to meet my maker
I'm goin home no more to roam
I'm just a goin over Jordan
I'm just a goin over home
