Get Away Jordan
by Dorothy Love Coates

Album: Gospel Greats


(Leader) Get Away
Get Away Jordan
(Leader) Get Away
Get Away Old Chilly Jordan
(Leader) Oh! Get Away
Get Away Jordan
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(((((((Repeat))))))

(Leader) You know I promised the Lord if he would set me free
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader) I'll go on and find out what the end might be
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader)One day, one day as I was walking along
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader)Yea, you know I heard a voice but I saw no one
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader)You know the voice I heard sounded so sweet chil
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader) Came down from my head to the sole of my feet
I wanna cross over to see my Lord

(Leader) Get Away
Get Away Jordan
(Leader) Get Away
Get Away Old Chilly Jordan
(Leader) Oh! Get Back
Get back Jordan
I wanna cross over to see my Lord

(Leader)You know one of these mornings it won't be long
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader) You gonna look for me chil and I'll be gone
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader) But a few more risings and settings of the sun
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader)This old battle be fought and the victory won
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader) You know the friends that I used to love so dear
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
(Leader) They've gone on to Glory and left me here
I wanna cross over to see my Lord

(Leader) When my feet gets cold, my eyes are shut, my body's been chilled by the hand of death.
Tongue glued to the roof of my mouth, my hands lay folded across my breast, You don't have to worry about the I felt, God Almighty done told me he'll be right there. Pick me up o'er his wings of love, and carry my soul to the Heaven up above. They tell that Jordan is deep and wide, but I promise Mother I'll see her on the other side.

(Leader) Get Away
Get Away Jordan
(Leader) Get Away
Get Away Old Chilly Jordan
(Leader) Oh! Get Back
Get back Jordan
I wanna cross over to see my Lord
