1.

G C D G I'm gonna sing you a brand new song, |G / D / It's all the truth for certain, |G C D G We can't live high if we get by, |D / G / | And get on the other side of Jordan.

chorus:

G / C G | Pull off your overcoat and roll up your sleeves, G / D / | Jordan is a hard road to travel, G / C G | Pull off your overcoat and roll up your sleeves, D / / G | Jordan is a hard road to travel I be-lieve.

2.

The public schools and the highways, Are causing quite an alarm, Get a country boy educated just a little, And he won't work on the farm.

3.

Now I don't know but I believe I'm right, The auto's ruined the country, Let's get back to the horse and buggy, And try to save some money.

4.

I know a man an evangelist, His tabernacle's always full, The people come from miles around, Just to hear him shoot the bull.

5.

You can talk about your evangelists, You can talk about Mr. Ford too, But Henry's shaking more hell out of the folks, Than all the evangelists do.
