      Well-a … I’m on my way to Canaan’s land

      I’m on my way to Canaan’s land

      I’m on my way to Canaan’s land

      I’m on my way, great God … I’m on my way.

 

      I asked my brother … yes, to come with-a me

      I asked my brother just to come with-a me

      I asked my brother come with-a me

      I’m on my way, great God … I’m on my way.

 

      Then, I turned and faced my sister to come with-a me … yeah, yeah …

      I turned and faced my sister … yes, to come with-a me

      I begged my sister to come with-a me

      I’m on my way, great God … I’m on my way.

 

      I’m askin’ hand-clappers, yeah, yeah to come with-a me

      Yes, I’m askin’ hand-clappers, oh, yeah, to come with-a me

      I’m askin’ hand-clappers to come with-a me

      I’m on my way, great God … I’m on my way.

 

      Don’t nobody quit me …

 

      Yes   I’m on my way to Canaan’s land … yea, yea …

      I’m on my way to Canaan’s land … yea, yea …

      I’m on my way … yea, yea … to Canaan’s land …

      I’m on my way … great, God Almighty … you know I’m on my way …
