Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Jah Jah chariot
Jah Jah chariot
Jah Jah chariot

Free as love can be
That's how free our love should be
We work our hearts for them day and night
But nothing ever seems to please them right
And every time you turn around
Somebody's trying to put you down
And every time you call a play
Some clown's getting in your way

Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot

All right, coming for to carry me home
Oh yeah, it's coming for to carry me home

Sometimes I wish that I
Could fly like a bird in the sky
Rise up above humanity
And mold us all in one with unity
'Cause every time you try to make a stride
Somebody want to check your life
Every time you try to go ahead
Somebody wish you'd step aside instead

Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot

Oh oh, comin' for to carry me home
Yeah yeah, comin' for to carry me home
Check out the queen and the pawn
Oh, it's comin' for to carry me home
Swing swing swing swing swing swing low Jah
Jah
A comin' for to carry me home

Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low... no more longer shall I roam
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Come Jah Jah children
Comin' for to carry me home
Get the queen and the pawn
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing swing swing swing swing swing low Jah Jah
Swing your chariot to carry me home
Swing low...
Swing low...
Swing low...

Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
Swing low, Jah Jah chariot
