Why don't you swing down sweet chariot, stop and let me ride?
Swing down chariot, stop and let me ride
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord calm and easy
Well, I've got a home on the other side

Why don't you swing down sweet chariot, stop and let me ride?
Swing down chariot, stop and let me ride
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord calm and easy
I've got a home on the other side

Well, Ezekiel went down in the middle of a field
He saw an angel workin' on a chariot wheel
Wasn't so particular 'bout the chariot wheel
Just wanted to know how a chariot feel

Why don't you swing down sweet chariot, stop and let me ride?
Swing down chariot, stop and let me ride
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord calm and easy
I've got a home on the other side

Well, Ezekiel went down and he got on board
Chariot went a bumpin' on down the road
Zeke wasn't so particular 'bout the bumpin' of the road
Just wanted to lay down his heavy load

Why don't you swing down sweet chariot, stop and let me ride?
Swing down chariot, stop and let me ride
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord calm and easy
I've got a home on the other side

Well, I got a Father in the promised land
Ain't gonna stop until I shake his hand
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord calm and easy
I've got a home on the other side

Why don't you swing down sweet chariot, stop and let me ride?
Swing down chariot, stop and let me ride
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord calm and easy
I've got a home on the other side

Why don't you swing down sweet chariot, stop and let me ride?
Swing down chariot, stop and let me ride
Rock me Lord, rock me Lord calm and easy
I've got a home on the other side, yeah
