Song Notes

A rousing, uptempo gospel celebration. The Modern Folk Quartet version with four-part (almost barbershop) harmonies was included on Rhino’s Washington Square Memoirs.

LYRIC

Jordon River

We are crossing Jordan’s River
Want my crown, my golden crown
Yes we are crossing Jordan’s River
Give me my crown, my golden crown
Jordan River is chilly and cold
Chills the body, not the soul
We are crossing Jordan River
Want my crown, my golden crown

Now when I get to heaven
Gonna sit down on a golden throne
Well when I get to heaven
I’m gonna sit down on my golden throne
Jordan River is chilly and cold
Chills the body, not the soul
We are crossing Jordan River
Want my crown, my golden crown

We are climbing Jacob’s ladder
I want my crown, my golden crown
We are climbing Jacob’s ladder
I want my crown, my golden crown
Jordan River is chilly and cold
Chills the body, not the soul
We are crossing Jordan River
Want my crown, my golden crown

Now all you sinners
Get together and follow me, yeah, follow me
Now all you sinners, men and women
Get together and follow me, yeah, follow me
Jordan River is chilly and cold
Chills the body, not the soul
We are crossing Jordan River
Want my crown, my golden crown
