They say the spirit moves in mysterious ways
Sometimes the way it moves looks plain berserk
But two things you should be slow to criticize
A mans choice of woman and his choice of work

Some work'll earn you top dollar
In this here tinsel town
That's where I started thinkin' of something else
'cause they couldn't film the spirit
From the waist on down

Sometimes I don't sleep too well,
But one day I know
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning

And all those books about me
Well there wasn't much love in 'em boys
I'm tellin' you if I'd taken all that medication
Man, I'd a rattled like one o' my lil girls toys

Now they call me a recluse
Been in the desert so long
Layin' on my back bidin' my time
I'm just waitin' for the right song
Then I'm comin' back

Sometimes I don't sleep too well,
But one day I know
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
Jordan sweet Jordan

Hand me any cup you find that's lyin' spare
Lord I've long time been a thirstin' for a share
Jordan waiting for me there
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
Jordan sweet Jordan

Hand me any cup you find that's lyin' spare
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
Jordan sweet Jordan

Hand me any cup you find that's lyin' spare
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
End of the road I'm traveling,
I will see Jordan beckoning
Jordan sweet Jordan

Hand me any cup you find that's lyin' spare
