C. & M.A. Gospel Quintette:
To Walk In Jerusalem Just Like John (c. 1923)

(back)

I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.
Oh, I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.

Oh John, oh John, what did you say?
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John)
That you wouldn't be back until Judgement Day?
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John).
Oh, I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.

John said that the city was just four-square
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John)
And none but the righteous would be there
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John)
Oh, I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.

When Peter was preachin' at Pentecost
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John)
Well, he was endowed with the Holy Ghost
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John)
Oh, I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.

I do believe what the Bible has taught (?)
That time of God is right to shout! (?)
Oh, I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.

If you get there before I do
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John)
You may look for me, I'm coming too!
(To walk in Jerusalem just like John)
Oh, I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.
Oh, I want to be ready, I want to be ready!
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem, just like John.
