The Duhks — Death Came A Knockin' lyrics

Death came a knockin'
You know that death came a knockin' on the mama's door
Singin' come on mama, ain't you ready to go
And my mama stooped down, buckled up her shoes
And she moved on down by the Jordan stream
And then she shout "Hallelujah, done, done my duty, got on my travelin' shoes"
You know that death came a knockin' on the sister's door
Singin' come on sister, ain't you ready to go
And my sister stooped down, buckled up her shoes
And she moved on down by the Jordan stream
And then she shout "Hallelujah, done, done my duty, got on my travelin' shoes"

You know that death came a knockin' on the brother's door
Singin' come on brother, ain't you ready to go
And my brother stooped down, buckled up his shoes
And he moved on down by the Jordan stream
And then he shout "Hallelujah, done, done my duty, got on my travelin' shoes"

You know that death came a knockin' on the neighbor's door
Singin' come on neighbor, ain't you ready to go
And my neighbor stooped down, buckled up his shoes
And he moved on down by the Jordan stream
And then she shout "Hallelujah, done, done my duty, got on my travelin' shoes"

You know that death came a knockin' on the preacher's door
Singin' come on preacher, ain't you ready to go
And my preacher stooped down, buckled up her shoes
And she moved on down by the Jordan stream
And then she shout "Hallelujah, done, done my duty, got on my travelin' shoes"

You know that death came a knockin' on my front door
Singin' come on sister, ain't you ready to go
So I stooped down, buckled my shoes
And I move on down by the Jordan stream
And then I shout "Hallelujah, done, done my duty, got on my travelin' shoes"
