WAYFARING STRANGER
(Traditional)
« © '55 Writer Share, PD »
I am a poor (just a poor) wayfaring stranger (wayfaring stranger)
Wanderinging through this world of woe
But there's no sorrow (there's no sorrow) toil nor danger (toil nor danger)
In that bright land to which I go
I'm going home to see my father I'm going home no more to roam
I'm just a going over Jordan I'm only going over home
I'm going home to see my mother I'm going home no more to roam
I'm just a going over Jordan I'm only going over home
Over home (going home)
