Jericho Road

This song is by Joan Baez and appears on the album Day After Tomorrow (2008).

I was walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road
And every mile that I traveled showed
And I'm walkin' down the Jericho road

But I just kept walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road
And the sunset red over fields of gold
And I'm walkin' down the Jericho road

Joshua fit the battle, that's how the story goes
And the walls come a-tumb-a-lin' down, I know
But I'm walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my mother
Walkin' down the Jericho road
Tears in her eyes and her head hung low
And she was walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my father
Walkin' down the Jericho road
His back bent over from a heavy load
And he was walkin'down the Jericho road

I said "Papa, don't you know me? Won't you lay your burden down?"
He shook his head and told me "Son, you better turn around"
He kept on walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road

Ooh, walkin' down the Jericho
Ooh, walkin' down the Jericho
Ooh, walkin' down the Jericho
Ooh-ooh

I met my brother
Walkin' down the Jericho road
And his hands were bloody but his face was clean
And he was walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my sister
Walkin' down the Jericho road
With a babe in her arms that I'd never seen
And she was walkin' down the Jericho road

She said "It's just a little orphan child I found along the way
I'll raise him as my own and he'll forgive us all someday"
Kept on walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my father (Walkin' down the Jericho)
I met my brother (Walkin' down the Jericho)
I met my sister (Walkin' down the Jericho)
I met my mother (Walkin' down the Jericho)

I said "Hello, sister!" (Walkin' down the Jericho)
I said "Hello, brother!" (Walkin' down the Jericho)
I said "Hello, father!" (Walkin' down the Jericho)
I said "Hello, mother!" (Walkin' down the Jericho)
