Well, this isn't it, either - but I thought I'd post it because it IS an additional version. I'll see what kind of trnanscription I can work up from the "Circle Be Unbroken" CD - great album, isn't it?

DON'T YOU HEAR JERUSALEM MOAN

Well I got a home on the other shore
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
I know I’ll live there forever more
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan

Chorus (after each verse):

Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
Thank God there's a heaven and a ringin' in my soul and my soul's set free
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan

Now sister Mary, she wears a golden chain
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
And on each link is a-Jesus' name
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan

Well, old Satan wears a hypocrite's shoes
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
If you don't watch out he's gonna step on you
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan

Well the Methodist preacher is a mighty fine man
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
He's showin' us the way to the Promised Land
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan

Well the Baptist preacher is a mighty fine preacher
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
A bible speaker is a natural born teacher
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
