Sugar Minott – River Jordan lyrics
River Jordan gonna roll, roll, roll, yeah

Jordan River, roll River Jordan
Calling us home, calling us home
We got to back home, back to Africa
It's just calling us home, calling us home

Mount Zion high, where we want to go
It's just calling us home, calling us home

So long we've been down in slavery, well
And now we just got to be free
Yes, we want to be free, well

Jordan River, roll River Jordan
Calling us home, calling us home
We got to back home, back to Africa
It's just calling us home, calling us home

So long we've been bound in shackles and chains, whoa
And now, we just want to go home
We got to go home, we want to go home, whoa

Jordan River gonna roll, roll, roll
Jordan River, let it roll

So long we've been bound in captivity
And now, we just got to be free
Babylon we want to be free, well

Jordan River, roll River Jordan
Calling us home, calling us home
We got to back home, back to Africa
It's just calling us home, calling us home

Oh, River Jordan gonna roll
Oh, River Jordan gonna roll, roll
