River Of Jordan
Recorded by Ricky Skaggs
Written by Hazel Houser

C               G7          C

To the river of Jordan  our Savior went one day
                          G7              C
And we read that John the Baptist met him there
When John baptized Jesus in Jordan’s rushing waters
    C               G7             C
The mighty power of God filled the air
                 (back up vocalist)
I’m on my way   (to the River of Jordan)
                     G7      (back ups)
I’m gonna wade right in   (in the rushing waters)
          C                                     F
I’m going down   I’m going down to the River of Jordan
            C           G7         C
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul
King Naaman was stricken with dreaded leprosy
And he sent for the man of God to pray
But Elisha said to Naaman  go dip yourself in Jordan
And let the cool water wash your spots away
So he went right in (to the River of Jordan)
He went right in (in the rushing waters)
to dip himself (he dipped himself in the River of Jordan)
And the cool waters made him whole
The River of Jordan is many miles away
This mighty river I may never see
But I’ll find myself an altar in an old fashioned church
My River of Jordan that will be
Repeat #1 & 2
