"I Feel Like Traveling On"
Gospel Banjo

Here's a rarity: a two-chord hymn! You can play the whole thing using only the G and D (or D7) chords!

I haven't been able to find out too much about this hymn. Cyberhymnal lists the original title as "I'm Going Home." They ask for help on the date of publication, and provide the lyrics below. Our version divides the first verse below into two, uses the first half of the third verse below and adds a different fourth verse and chorus. If you have any more info on this one, please let us know.

My heav’nly home is bright and fair,
Nor pain nor death can enter there;
Its glitt’ring towers the sun outshine,
That heav’nly mansion shall be mine.

I’m going home, I’m going home,
I’m going home to die no more,
To die no more, to die no more,
I’m going home to die no more.

My Father’s home is built on high,
Far, far above the starry sky;
When from this earthly prison free,
That heav’nly mansion mine shall be.

Let others seek a home below,
Which flames devour, or waves o’erflow;
Be mine a happier lot to own
A heav’nly mansion near the throne.
