THE FAR SIDE BANKS OF JORDAN

The Carter Family

Key = F#

Intro: F#  F#  F#  F#

F#                              C#7
I'll admit my steps are growing wearier each day
                                       F#
Still I've got a certain journey on my mind
                                       C#7
Lures of this old world have ceased to make me want to stay
                               F#
My one regret is leaving you behind

F#                               C#7
If it proves to be his will that I am first to cross
                                   F#
And somehow I've a feeling it will be
                                  C#7
When it comes your turn to travel likewise don't feel lost
                                        F#
For I will be the first one that you'll see

Chorus:
            F#
And I'll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
F#7     B                               F#
I'll be sitting drawing pictures in the sand
    C#7                          F#
And when I see you coming, I will rise up with a shout
         B                   F#            C#7               F#
And come running through the shallow water reaching for your hand

Lead Break: B - F# - C#7 - F# - F#

F#                                    C#7
Through this life we've laboured long to earn our meagre fare
                                            F#
It's brought us trembling hands and failing eyes
                                      C#7
So I'll just rest there on that shore and turn my eyes away
                                   F#
Until you come then we'll see paradise

Repeat chorus x 2
