Well, you got to walk (you got to walk)
That lonesome valley (that lonesome valley)
You got to walk it by yourself
Ain't nobody here can walk it for you
You got to walk it by yourself

Some folks say (well some folks say)
That John was a Baptist
(That John was a Baptist)
Some folks say (some folks say)
He was a Jew (that he was a Jew)
But the Holy (but the Holy)
Bible tells us (Bible tells us)
That he was (that he was)
A preacher too

You got to walk (you got to walk)
That lonesome valley (that lonesome valley)
You got to walk (you got to walk)
It by yourself (it by yourself)
Ain't nobody here (ain't nobody here)
Can walk it for you (can walk it for you)
You got to walk (you got to walk)
It by yourself

Daniel was (Daniel was)
A Bible hero (a Bible hero)
He was a Prophet (he was a Proph..)
Brave and true (brave and true)
In a den of hungry lions
He showed what faith can do for you

You got to walk (well you got to walk)
That lonesome valley (that lonesome valley)
You got to walk (you got to walk)
It by yourself (it by yourself)
Ain't nobody here (ain't nobody here)
Can walk it for you (can walk it for you)
You got to walk it by yourself

Now though the road (though the road)
Be rough and rocky (be rough and rocky)
And the hills be steep and high
We can sing, as we go marching
And we'll win that one big union, bye and bye

We got to walk (well you got to walk)
That lonesome valley (that lonesome valley)
You got to walk it by yourself
Ain't nobody here can walk it for you
You got to walk it by yourself
