KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE lyrics - Travellin' On For Jesus

KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"Travellin' On For Jesus"
(Traditional, adaptation Kate McGarrigle)

Lord I'm travellin' on for Jesus night and day
Yes I'm travellin' now for Jesus night and day
I want you to make up on your mind
Sure a good friend's hard to find, Lord
Tellin' you everybody will be your friend

Tell you my mother now she's dying Lord
These many years ago
When she lay on her death bed now
She put now a whisper in my ear
(What she say Kate?)
Don't mind, don't mind
Don't mind what the people says
Ah but don't take everybody to be your friend

If you find your brother in the fault
Don't carry his name abroad
Seal it down on your forehead now
And take that home to my God
But don't mind, don't mind
Don't mind what the people says
Ah but don't take everybody
To be your friend

Some people owe you money
And they see you walking this road
Don't you know that when they see you walking this road
They will turn off another and go
But don't mind, don't mind
Don't mind what the people says
Ah but don't take everybody
To be your friend

Yes I'm travellin' on now for Jesus night and day
Night and day
Let me tell you I'm travellin' on now for Jesus
Night and day
He is the Maker of the heavens
Who be born now
From the Virgin Mary
One time he been crucified
But I know
Jesus is all of these things
Amen
