Intro: Am Am  Dm Dm  Am Am

Am Am
I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger
Dm Dm Am Am
Travelin' through this world below

There's no sickness, no toil, nor danger
Dm Dm Am Am
In that bright land to which I go


F F C C
I'm going there to see my Father
F F E7 E7 E E
and all my loved ones who've gone on
Am Am
I'm just goin' over Jordan
Dm Dm Am Am
I'm just goin' over home


Am Am
I know dark clouds will gather round me
Dm Dm Am Am
I know my way is hard and steep

But beauteous fields arise before me
Dm Dm Am Am
Where God's redeemed, their vigil keeps


F F C C
I'm going there to see my Mother
F F E7 E7 E E
She said she'd meet me when I come
Am Am
I'm just goin' over Jordan
Dm Dm Am Am
I'm just goin' over home
Am Am
I'm just goin' over Jordan
Dm Dm Am Am
I'm just goin' over home

I want this is tab format so I can play the melody and not just strum chords. Can't figure out how to find that or convert it. Help?
