Swing Low Sweet Chariot

Writer(s): Negro Spiritual

Frank: One of the truly American forms of music is the Negro Spiritual. Full of warmth and sadness, they always strive for understanding and help. So that here now is one of the finest of Negro Spirituals, arranged by Bobby Tucker and Cy Oliver, the traditional Swing Low Sweet Chariot.

Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!

I looked over Jordan and what did I see, comin’ for to carry me home!
A band of angels comin’ after me, comin’ for to carry me home!
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!

If you get there before I do, comin’ for to carry me home,
Tell all my frien’s that I’m coming too, comin’ for to carry me home.
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!
Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home!
