Far Side Banks Of Jordan

  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 Be- hind
  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 Para- dise
Repeat Chorus x 2
