verse:
               D            C       E
I was walkin' walkin' down jericho road 
 D      C           E
every mile that I traveled showed
            D           C      E
and I was walkin' down jericho road

i just kept walkin' walkin' down jericho road
the sun burned red over fields of gold
and i was walkin' down jericho road

chorus:
G                                      D
joshua went to battle that's how the story goes
         E                   C
and the walls came tumblin' down i know 

(back to verse riff)
but i'm still walkin' walkin' down jericho road

i met my mamma walkin' down jericho road
tears in eyes and her head hung low 
and she's walkin' down jericho road
i met my papa walkin' down jericho road
back bent low from a heavy load 
and he's walkin' down jericho road

chorus:
        G
i said papa don't you know me 
           D
won't you lay your burden down
          E
he just shook his head and said 
          C
son you better turn around 
(BACK TO VERSE RIFF)
and he keep on walkin' walkin' down jericho road

i met my brother walkin' down jericho road

his hands were bloody but face was clean

and he's walkin' down jericho road

i met my sister walkin' down jericho road

a baby in her arms i had never seen 

and they're walkin' down jericho road
              G
she said its just and orphan child 
   D
i found along the way
      E                         C
i'll raise him and maybe he'll forgive us all someday
(back to verse riff)
for walkin' down jericho road
