Iris Dement – The Shores Of Jordan lyrics

Well, I looked up into heaven, I thought I'd solve life's mysteries.
I observed the constellations for a clue to my destiny.
But the rhyme of life confounds me, things will be as things will be.
So I'll just dance the shores of Jordan 'til the angels carry me.

I'm gonna let my feet go dancing to my very favourite songs,
'Cause I know my time for leaving is bound to come before too long.
And there ain't no way of me knowing how tomorrow's gonna be,
So I just dance the shores of Jordan 'til the angels carry me.

And I traveled to a prison; I saw my share of shattered dreams.
Were the tables slightly tilted? I could be bound, they could be free.
But I believe no tear goes wasted, and so I fell there on my knees,
Vowed I'd dance the shores of Jordan 'til the angels carried me.

I'm gonna let my feet go dancing to my very favourite songs,
'Cause I know my time for leaving is bound to come 'fore too long.
And there ain't no way of me knowing how tomorrow's gonna be,
So I just dance the shores of Jordan 'til the angels carry me.

Instrumental break.

An' I saw a weary traveller heading down a dusty road.
And I said "Friend, please may I help you, it seems you haul a heavy load."
But he said: "Though my burden's heavy, in my heart I'm travelling light,
"So I can cross old river Jordan when I'm called to the other side."

I'm gonna let my feet go dancing to my very favourite songs,
'Cause I know my time for leaving is bound to come before too long.
Oh, and there ain't no way of me knowing how tomorrow's gonna be,
So I just dance the shores of Jordan 'til the angels carry me.

I just dance the shores of Jordan 'til the angels carry me.
I know they'll carry me.
