Jan Howard – Swing Low Sweet Chariot lyrics
[ Jan ]
I looked over Jordan and what did I see
[ Bill ]
Comin' for to carry me home
A band of angels comin' after me
[ Jan ]
Comin' for to carry me home
[ Both ]
Swing low swing low sweet chariot comin' for to carry me home
Swing low swing low sweet chariot comin' for to carry me home

[ Jan ]
If you get there before I do
[ Bill ]
Comin' for to carry me home
Tell all of my friends I'm comin' too
[ Jan ]
Comin' for to carry me home
[ Both ]
Swing low swing low sweet chariot...
[ steel - guitar ]

[ Jan ]
I remember well my brightest day
[ Bill ]
Comin' for to carry me home
When Jesus washed my sins away
[ Jan ]
Comin' for to carry me home
[ Both ]
Swing low swing low sweet chariot...

[ Jan ]
I'm sometimes up and I'm sometimes down
[ Bill ]
Comin' for to carry me home
But still my soul feels heavenly bound
[ Jan ]
Comin' for to carry me home
[ Both ]
Swing low swing low sweet chariot...
