Get Up John

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the live album At The Ryman (1992) by Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers and on the box set Songbird: Rare Tracks & Forgotten Gems (2007).

Well, get up John, go down to Jordan
Get up John, prepare the way
Man from Galilee is waitin'
You must meet him there today

Get up John, go tell my people
This will be a Holy day
Tell them of the Jew that's waiting
That the Saviour's on the way

John you've been chosen
John go unafraid
John I'll go with you
John The Baptist, this is the day

Well, get up John, go tell Jerusalem
Saviour's waiting on the shore
Baptize Him in the River Jordan
I'll send a dove from Heaven's door

John you've been chosen
John go unafraid
John I'll go with you
John The Baptist, this is the day

Well, get up John your work is finished
Daylight breaks, the soldiers come
You will die for me tomorrow
Welcome home, your race is run

John you've been chosen
John go unafraid
John I'll go with you
John The Baptist, this is the day...
