The Shores Of Jordan by Iris DeMent Guitar Chords

[Verse 1]
Bb
I looked up into heaven,
Eb Bb
I thought I’d solve life’s mysteries.
Bb F
I observed the constellations for a clue to my destiny.
Bb
But the rhyme of life confounds me,
Eb Bb
Things will be as things will be.
Bb F Bb
So I’ll just dance the shores of Jordan ’till the angels carry me.

[Chorus]
Eb Bb
I’m gonna let my feet go dancing to my very favourite song,
Bb C F
‘Cause I know my time for leaving is bound to come before too long.
Bb Eb Bb
And there ain’t no way of me knowing how tomorrow’s gonna be,
Bb F Bb
So I’ll just dance the shores of Jordan ’till the angels carry me.

[Verse 2]
Bb
I travelled to a prison,
Eb
Saw my share of shattered dreams.
Bb F Bb
Were the tables slightly tilted I could be bound they could be free.
Bb
But I believe no tear goes wasted,
Eb
And so I fell there on my knees.
Bb F Bb
And vowed I’d dance the shores of Jordan ’till the angels carried me.

[Chorus]
Eb Bb
I’m gonna let my feet go dancing to my very favourite song,
Bb C F
‘Cause I know my time for leaving is bound to come before too long.
Bb Eb Bb
And there ain’t no way of me knowing how tomorrow’s gonna be,
Bb F Bb
So I’ll just dance the shores of Jordan ’till the angels carry me.

[Verse 3]
Bb Eb
I saw a weary traveller heading down a dusty road.
Bb F Bb
I said, “Friend please may I help you, it seems you haul a heavy load.”
Eb
And he said, “Although my burden’s heavy, in my heart I’m travelling light.
Bb F Bb
So I can cross old river Jordan when I’m called to the other side.”

[Chorus]
Eb Bb
I’m gonna let my feet go dancing to my very favourite song,
Bb C F
‘Cause I know my time for leaving is bound to come before too long.
Bb Eb Bb
And there ain’t no way of me knowing how tomorrow’s gonna be,
Bb F Bb
So I’ll just dance the shores of Jordan ’till the angels carry me.
