Chorus:
C    F      C               Em    G7
Deep river, my home is over Jordan

Deep river; Lord I want to cross over
G7   C
Into camp ground

Am                    Em        Am     Em
Oh, don’t you want to go to the gospel feast

That promised land where all is peace

I’ll go up to heaven and take my seat
And cast my crown at Jesus feet

When I go up to heaven I’ll walk about 
There’s nobody there to turn me out
