Goin' down to the River Jordan
Gonna ask to save a-my soul.
Goin' down to the River Jordan
Gonna ask to save a-my soul.
Gonna get down on my knees
And there I'm gonna freeze!
Goin' down to the river
To save my soul, oh!

Well, Moses opened up the waters
And he let the people through
Well, now Moses opened up the waters
And he let the people through.
'Twas a windy day and they barrelled around
And the walls come a-tumblin' down.
Down, down to the river
To save my soul.

Well, save my soul, save my soul!
Save my soul, save my soul!
Goin' down to the river (yeah)
To save a-my soul (to save my soul).

(Bop-bop, yep bop-bop doobydooby bop-bop
Doobydooby bop-bop, doobydooby bop-bop
Yep bop-bop, yep bop-bop, yep bop-bop ...)

Now listen, brother Henry
Listen here to me.
Forget about your Jezebel
And a-come, come, come with me.
We'll go down to the river
We'll get down on our knees
And ask the Lord to save our souls
Save us, if You please!

Well, save my soul, save my soul!
Save my soul, save my soul!
Goin' down to the river (yeah)
To save a-my soul (to save my soul).
Save my soul, save my soul
Save my soul, save my soul
Save my soul, save my soul.

Well, now save my soul, save my soul!
Save my soul, save my soul!
Goin' down to the river (yeah)
To save a-my soul (to save my soul).
