Possum On A Rail – key of G

November 22nd, 2011

Here is a little bit of The Mississippi Possum Hunters playing Possum On A Rail from a 78RPM record that was recorded way back in 1930:

River of Jordan

River of Jordan –  from The Louvin Brothers

To the River of Jordan, our Savior went one day
And preacher John The Baptist met Him there.
And when John baptized Jesus in Jordan’s rushing waters
The mighty power of God filled the air.

And I’m on my way (to the River Of Jordan).
Gonna wade right in (to the rushing waters).
I’ll dip myself (I’ll dip myself)
In the River Of Jordan
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul.

King Naaman was stricken with dreaded leprosy
And he sent for the man of God to pray.
But Elisha said to Naaman “go and dip yourself in Jordan”
And let the cool waters wash your spots away.

So he went right down (to the River Of Jordan),
And he went right in (to the rushing waters).
He dipped himself (he dipped himself)
In the River Of Jordan
And the cool waters made him whole.

Now the River Of Jordan is many miles away
And this mighty river I may never see.
But I’ll find myself an alter in an old fashioned church
And my River Of Jordan that will be.

And I’m on my way (to the River Of Jordan).
Gonna wade right in (to the rushing waters).
I’ll dip myself (I’ll dip myself)
In the River Of Jordan
And let the cool waters cleanse my soul.

November 9th, 2010
G                     D
little birdie, little birdie
                         G
come and sing to me your song
                        D
I've a short time to be with you
                      G
and a long time to be gone

G                           D
I don't want your greenback dollar
                            G
I don't want your watch and chain
                         D
all I want is your heart darling
                       G
won't you take me back again?

I ain't done nothing but bite
