I AM A PILGRIM (Trad) Lyrics ex Merle Travis

I am a pilgrim and a stranger
Traveling through this wearisome land
And I've got a home in that yonder city, good Lord
And it's not (good Lordy it's not) not built by hand

I got a mother, a sister and a brother
Who have gone to that sweet home
And I'm determined, to go and see them, good Lord
Over on (good Lordy over on) that other shore

As I go down to the river of Jordan
Just to bathe my weary soul
If I could touch, but the hem of His garment, good Lord
I believe (good Lordy I believe) that it would make me whole

Now when I'm dead, laying in my coffin
And all of my friends come gather round
They can say that, he's just laying there sleeping, good Lord
Sweet peace (Lordy sweet peace) my soul has found
