Lyrics

We got a long way to travel
Children we got a long way to travel, Lord
Children we got a long way to travel

Well I just want to make it in the kingdom
Well I just want to make it in the kingdom, Lord
Well I just want to make it in the kingdom

Children I got a long way to travel
Children I got a long way to travel, Lord
Children I got a long way to travel

Well I just want to make it over yonder
Well I just want to make it over yonder, Lord
Well I just want to make it over yonder

Well I got on my travelin’ shoes
Well I got on my travelin’ shoes, Lord
Well I got on my travelin’ shoes
