Emmylou Harris — Get Up John lyrics

(Bill Monroe/Marty Stuart/Jerry Sullivan)

Well get up John go down to Jordan
Get up John prepare the way
Man from Galilee is waiting
You must meet him there today

Get up John go tell my people
This will be a Holy day
Tell them of the Jew that's waiting
That the Saviors on the way

John
Even the children
John
Go Unafraid
John
I'll go with you
John The Baptist
This is the day

Well get up John go tell Jerusalem
Savior's waiting on the shore
Baptize Him in the River Jordan
I'll send a dove from Heaven's door

John
Even the children
John
Go Unafraid
John
I'll go with you
John The Baptist
This is the day

Well get up John your work is finished
Daylight breaks the soldiers come
You will die for me tomorrow
Welcome home your race is run

John
You've been chosen
John
Go Unafraid
John
I'll go with you
John The Baptist
This is the day
