Jordan Am A Hard Road To Travel

print

I’m gonna sing you a brand new song
It’s all the truth for certain
We can’t live high if we get by
And get on the other side of Jordan

   Oh pull off your overcoat and roll up your sleeves
   Jordan is a hard road to travel
   Pull off your overcoat and roll up your sleeves
   Jordan is a hard road to travel I believe.

The public schools and the highways
are causing quite an alarm
Get a country boy educated just a little
and he won’t work on the farm

Now I don’t know but I believe I’m right
the auto’s ruined the country
Let’s get back to the horse and buggy
and try to save some money.

I know a man an evangelist
his tabernacle’s always full
The people come from miles around
just to hear him shoot the bull

You can talk about your evangelists
you can talk about Mr. Ford too
But Henry’s shaking more hell out of the folks
than all the evangelists do.
