I couldn't find a demo or lesson in the key of Am. It's up to FKW students to use the skills they learned in our Ear Training lessons to hear the I-IV-V chords and transpose. You can do it! :-)

Lyrics

(1) I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Travelling through this world of woe
But there's no sickness, toil or danger
In that bright land to which I go

Well I'm going there
To meet my mother
Said she'd meet me when I come
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home


(2) I know dark clouds
Will gather 'round me
I know my way
Will be rough and steep
But golden fields lie just before me
Where weary eyes
no more shall weep.

Well I'm going there
To meet my loved ones
Gone on before me, one by one
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home


(3) I'll soon be free from every trial,
My body rests in the old graveyard.
I'll drop the cross of self denial,
And enter on my great reward.

Well I'm going there
To meet my Savior
Dwell with Him and never roam
I'm only going over Jordan
I'm only going over home
