lyrics

Went down to the Tumen River

Went down to the river to pray

Lord, watch over my brothers and sisters

I pray that I’ll be back someday



Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



My father, he passed away

My sister, sold a slave

Does anyone out there hear my cries

Lord, let your kingdom come



And I said

Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



Ain’t got no food, ain’t got no home

Ain’t got no place to call my own

This river’s gonna be my saving grace

I just can’t live like this no more



Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



This may be my final hour

No time to be afraid

I head on down to the water’s edge

And I pray that I’ll be back someday

And I pray that I’ll be back someday



Run Joseph run

Run Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



Run, Joseph run

Run, Joseph run

Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land



Salvation’s waiting on the other side

And he’s headed for the promise land
