Wayfaring Stranger
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


I am a poor wayfaring stranger
While journeying through this world of woe
Yet there's no sickness toil nor danger
In that bright land to which I go

I'm going there to see my father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home
I know dark clouds will gather over me
I know my way my way is rough and steep
Yet beautiful fields lie just before me
And God's redeemed their vigils keep

I'm going there to see my father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I'm going there oh to see my mother
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I want to wear that crown of glory
When I get home to that good land
Well I want to shout salvation's story
In concert with the blood-washed band

I'm going there to see my Savior
Oh I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

Well I'm only going over home
Yeah only going over home
I'm only going over home

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
While journeying through this world of woe
Yet there's no sickness toil nor danger
In that bright land to which I go

I'm going there to see my father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I know dark clouds will gather over me
I know my way is rough and steep
Yet beautiful fields lie just before me
And God's redeemed their vigils keep

I'm going there to see my father
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I'm going there to see my mother
I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

I want to wear that crown of glory
When I get home to that good land
Well I want to shout salvation's story
In concert with the blood-washed band

I'm going there to see my Savior
Oh I'm going there no more to roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home

Well I'm only going over home
Yeah only going over home
I'm only going over home

WAYFARING STRANGER
by
Johnny Cash
I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through this world below
There is no sickness, no toil, nor danger
In that bright land to which I go
I'm going there to see my Father
And all my loved ones who've gone on
I'm just going over Jordan
I'm just going over home
I know dark clouds will gather 'round me
I know my way is hard and steep
But beauteous fields arise before me
Where God's redeemed,

i've lost count of how many times i've played this song, no words to describe this piece of greatness

@Walking Horse
It's fairly traditional, but also excellent. There are also excellent version by Doc Watson and EmmyLou Harris but I think this version remains my own favourite. Doc Watson I like a lot. Very traditional, he has a resonant, natural baritone voice, and the acoustic guitars of himself and his son (and a later version with his grandson years after his son Merle had died) have a lovely resonance to them. Very well worth a listen.

MCGr3nad3 = You should listen to the version by Hayde Bluegrass Orchestra! Marvellous!

Norma Gilpin

Riley Kent
