JORDAN IS A HARD ROAD
Uncle Dave Macon
1: Now, I don't know, but I believe
The automobile's ruined the country.
Let's go back to the horse and buggy
And try to save some money!
Ref: Take off your overcoat and roll up your sleeve.
Jordan is a hard road to travel!
Take off your overcoat and roll up your sleeve.
Jordan is a hard road to travel, I believe!
2: The public schools and the highways
Are raising quite an alarm!
Y' get a country boy educated just a little
Well, he ain't a-gonna stay on the farm.
3: I know a man who's an evangelist.
His tabernacle's always full,
People keep coming from miles around,
Just to hear him shoot the bull!
4: You can talk about your evangelists.
You can talk about Henry Ford, too,
Henry's shaking more Hell out of folks
Than all the evangelists do!
5: I've been to the East and I've been to the West.
I've been to old Virginny.
I run my head in a hornets' nest
And I never got stung on any!
6: It rained 40 days and it rained 40 nights
And it rained on the Alleghany Mountains
It rained 40 horses and a Dominecker mule
And they landed on the other side of Jordan.
