Don’t You Let Nobody Turn You ‘Round


(African American Spiritual)

Don’t you let nobody turn you ’round,
Turn you round, turn you round,
Don’t you let nobody turn you ’round,
Keep the straight and the narrow way. Refrain

1. I was at the river of Jordan,
Baptism was begun,
John baptized the multitude,
But he sprinkled nary one.

2. The Baptists, they go by water,
The Methodists go by land,
But when they get to heaven,
They’ll shake each others’ hands. Refrain
