I was walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road
And every mile that I traveled showed
And I'm walkin' down the Jericho road

But I just kept on walkin'
Walkin' down the Jericho road
And the sun set red over fields of gold
And I'm walkin' down the Jericho road

Well, Joshua fit the battle, that's how the story goes
The walls come a-tumb-a-lin' down I know
But I'm walkin', walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my mother walkin' down the Jericho road
Tears in her eyes and her head hung low
And she was walkin' down the Jericho road

And I met my father walkin' down the Jericho road
His back bent over from a heavy load
And he was walkin' down the Jericho road

I said, "Papa, don't you know me?
Won't you lay your burden down?"
He shook his head and told me, "Son, you better turn around"
He kept on walkin', walkin' down the Jericho road

Ooh, walkin' down the Jericho
Ooh, walkin' down the Jericho
Ooh, walkin' down the Jericho, ooh, ooh

I met my brother
Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road
And his hands were bloody but his face was clean
And he was walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my sister
Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road
With a baby in her arms that I'd never seen
She was walkin' down the Jericho road

She said, "It's just a little orphan child I found along the way
I'll raise him as my own and he'll forgive us all someday"
Kept on walkin', walkin' down the Jericho road

I met my father
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)
I met my brother
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)

I met my sister
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)
I met my mother
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)

I said hello sister
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)
I said hello brother
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)

I said hello father
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)
I said hello mother
(Walk, walkin' down the Jericho road)
