The writer of this song is Terry Smith, I have taken the words from the lead sheet that he sent me, so it is the original version. I have a letter from Terry telling about this song if you would be interested I would be more than happy to email it to you. It is very long. I have also included his web site after the song>

Far Side Banks Of Jordan

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

If it proves to be his will that I am first to cross,
And somehow I've a feeling it will be
When it comes your time to travel likewise, don't feel lost:
Cause I will be the first one that you see.

Chorus:I'll be waiting on the Far Side Banks Of Jordon!
I'll be sitting, drawing pictures in the sand.
When I see you coming, I will rise up with a shout,
And come running through the shallow water, reaching for your hand.

Through this life we've labored long to earn our meager way
It's brought us trembling hands and failing eyes,
So I'll just rest there on the shore and turn my eyes away until you come,
Then We'll see paradise

Chorus http://www.gotech.com/tsmith/

I like it, too. It is on Alison Krauss & the Cox Family, I Know Who Holds Tomorrow (Rounder CD 0307).
