Wayfaring Stranger

Cm
Iím  a poor wayfaring stranger
	          Fm                 Cm
While traveling thru this world of woe

Yet thereís no sickness, toil, or danger
	        Fm               Cm
In that bright world to which I go
	   Ab               Eb
Iím going there to see my Father
	   Ab       Cm       G7
Iím going there no more to roam
	   Cm
Iím only going over Jordan
	  Fm         Cm
Iím only going over home

SOLO

Cm
I know dark clouds will hang Ďround me,
          Fm               Cm
I know my way is rough and steep

Yet beauteous fields lie just before me
            Fm                     Cm
Where Godís redeemed their virgils keep
          Ab              Eb
Iím going there to see my mother
               Ab      Cm     G7  
She said sheíd meet me when I come
	   Cm
I'm only going over Jordan
	  Fm         Cm
I'm only going over home

SOLO
