It's a mighty rocky road.
Traveling a mighty rocky road.
It's a mighty rocky road, she said,
it goes on forever and ever.

Sweet water divine. Sweet Savior of mine.
Oh, my Jesus will find me in time.
Sweet water divine.

I hear singing down the road.
Can't you hear them singing down the road?
It's a mighty rocky road, she said,
it goes on forever and ever.

Sweet water, etc

All the saints been down the road,
just before me, walkin' down the road.
See them walking hand in hand, she said,
though the way goes on forever.
