Lyr/Chords Req: The Carter Family, 1927 Victo

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

I'm looking for any lyrics from the 1927 - 1928 Ralph Peer Sessions, particularly The Wandering Boy, River of Jordan and The Poor Orphan Child. Thanks.

Better yet, here is a Mudcat discussion with the lyrics for Wandering Boy: CLICK!

THIS has info on River of Jordan but not your version...

Is this it?

~S~

======================================================

RIVER OF JORDAN

To the river of Jordan our Savior went one day,
And we read that John the Baptist met him there.
When John baptized Jesus in Jordan's rushing water,
The mighty power of God filled the air

CHO: I'm goin' down, (to the river of Jordan,)
Gonna wade right in, (to the rushing waters)
Gonna dip myself, (gonna dip myself)
In the river of Jordan
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul.

King Naimen was stricken with dreaded leprosy,
And he sent for a man of God to pray,
Elijah said to Naimen, go dip yourself in Jordan,
And let the cool water wash your spots away.

So he went right down (to the river of Jordan),
He went right in (to the rushing water)
He dipped himself (He dipped himself)
In the River of Jordan
And the cool waters made him whole.

The River of Jordan is many miles away,
And that great river I may never see,
So I'll find myself an altar in an old-fashioned church.
And my river of Jordan that will be.

I'm goin' down, (to the river of Jordan,)
Gonna wade right in, (to the rushing waters)
Gonna dip myself, (gonna dip myself)
In the river of Jordan
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul.

Subject: Lyr Add: POOR LITTLE ORPHANED BOY (Carter)
From: wysiwyg
Date: 07 Sep 01 - 11:47 PM

And I am not sure if this is the other one you are looking for.

~S~

==========================================================

POOR LITTLE ORPHANED BOY

My mother died when I was young
My sisters, they were sad
They lay their hands upon my head
And ought me how to pray

CHO: So now my mother she's gone to rest
In the land of purist joy
And I wonder if she thinks of me
Her poor little orphan boy

When I was only two years old
I never shall forget
A parting kiss she gave to me
I sometimes feel it yet

When I was sick and every hour
She watched me as I lay
And with her kind and gentle hand
She soothed me tenderly

So now I press this world alone
Her love with me shall stay
And from the throne above the skies
Her smiles shall rest on me

More likely this one.

~S~

=========================================================

THE POOR ORPHAN CHILD

I hear a low faint voice of death call full and mamma's dead
And it comes from the poor orphan child that must be clothed and fed
And it calls from the poor orphan child that must be clothed and fed
And it calls from the poor orphan child that must be clothed and fed

CHO:
Savior lead them by the hand (Gently lead them by the hand)
Savior lead them by the hand (Gently lead them by the hand)
Savior lead them by the hand
Till they all reach that glittering strand

They call from mended children mouths (?) poor little boys and girls
Who once had loved their loving hands to smooth their golden curls
Who wanted mothers loving hands to smooth their golden curls
Who wanted mothers loving hands to smooth their golden curls

But now we see those wandering curls hang gallop round their brow
They say to us my pappa's dead and I've no mother now
They say to us my pappa's dead and I've no mother now
They say to us my pappa's dead and I've no mother now

Oh savior every orphan breath wherever they may roam
Bless every hand that leaves them aid and bless the orphan home
Bless every hand that leaves them aid and bless the orphan home
Bless every hand that leaves them aid and bless the orphan home
