The Other Side of Jordan.

David had a banjo, and he kept it strung,
And he 'ranged the music accordin'-
Then he play'd a tune, call'd, " Go it, while you're young,"
And they dance it on t'other side of Jordan.

So I pull'd off my coat, and roll'd up my sleeve­Jordan's a hard road to trabble;
So I pull'd off my coat, and roll'd up my sleeve­Jordan's a hard road to trabble, I believe.

David and Goliah, they went out to fight.
Old Father Miller went out to part 'em;
He up with a stone, hit David on the shin,
And it lauded on t'other side of Jordan.-Chorus.

The M.P.'s came, and they took 'em up,
But the Mayor gave them their pardon;
They both shook hands and said they'd agree,
And settle on the other side of Jordan.-Chorus.

Oh! the cod-fish question, it made a mighty talk,
'Twas a subject that we nebber said a word on;
But when John Bull got sassy, the Yankees made him wnlk,
And they drobe him to the other side of Jordan.-Chorus.

There's "Poor Uncle Tom," and "The Old Folks at Home,"
Am the songs that all ob you hab heard on;
But the greatest song ob all, that will hab the greatest run,
Is the song about the other side of Jordan.-Chorus.
