GONNA SIT DOWN ON THE BANKS OF THE RIVER

I'm gonna run through the streets of the city
Where my Lord have gone on before
I'm gonna sit down on the banks of the river
I won't be back no more

All my crying will be over
I won't have to cry no more
I'm gonna sit down on the banks of the river
And I won't be back no more

We're gonna have a good time when we all get there
Gonna crown Him Lord of all
I'm gonna sit down on the banks of the river
God knows I won't be back no more

Hallelujah!
Well, well
Oh, well
Oh, oh, yeah!
Oh, God knows

Well gonna be where no lies be told on me
When I get on the other side
I'm gonna sit down on the banks of the river
Well I won't be back no more

Tell God all about my troubles
That I had in this world here below
I'm gonna sit down on the banks of the river
Hey!

I'm gonna fly from mansion to mansion
When I get on the other side
I'm gonna sit down on the banks of the river
Well I won't be back no more

Gonna meet my mother and my father
And my sisters and my brothers too
Yeah!
What?

I'll be where I won't have to say no more goodbyes
And won't have to part no more
Yeah, sit down on the banks of the river
Lord I won't be back no more
