Fortune performed his first show with the Statler Brothers on January 28, 1982, in Savannah, Georgia. He joined the group permanently in August of 1982 when DeWitt was unable to return to the stage.

Fortune sang tenor for the Statler Brothers for 21 years, and wrote several number one songs that were recorded by the Statler Brothers, including Elizabeth, Too Much on My Heart, and My Only Love. When other members of the Statler Brothers (Don, Harold and Phil) retired in 2002, he continued to perform, but as a solo artist. In 2015 he released Hits & Hymns produced by Ben Isaacs.

Jimmy Fortune I Believe Lyrics

When I see the sunrise in the morning
When I feel the wind blow across my face
When I hear the sound of children playing
I know it’s all a part of god’s amazing grace
And I believe there’s a place called heaven
I believe in a place called Calvary
I believe in a man his name is Jesus
And I believe that he gave his life for me
I was there the day my mamma went to heaven
I held her hand as she closed her eyes to sleep
I felt the power of ten thousand angels
Take her soul away to be crowned at Jesus’ feet
And I believe there’s a place called heaven
I believe in a place called Calvary
I believe in a man whose name is Jesus
And I believe that he gave his life for me
Oh, and I believe that he gave his life for me

Jimmy Fortune Far Side Banks Of Jordan

I believe my steps are growing wearier each day
Still I’ve got a journey on my mind
Lures of this old world have ceased to make me wanna stay
And my one regret is leaving you behind

If it proves to be his will that I am first to go
And somehow I’ll be feeling it will be
When it comes your times to travel likewise don’t feel lost
For I will be the first one that you’ll see

And I’ll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
I’ll be waiting, drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with the shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand

Through this life we’ve labored hard to earn our meager fare
It’s brought us trembling hands and failing eyes
I’ll just rest here on this shore and turn my eyes away
Until you come then we’ll see paradise

And I’ll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
I’ll be waiting, drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with the shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand

And I’ll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan
I’ll be waiting, drawing pictures in the sand
And when I see you coming I will rise up with the shout
And come running through the shallow waters reaching for your hand

The project is a mixture of some inspirational classics, new material and a few Statler Brothers hits, such as “Elizabeth” and “More Than a Name on a Wall” — both of which the singer wrote. One of the newer songs on the album is the thought-provoking “If I Were God.” Fortune shared the story of how the song came to be.
