Chorus:
Deep river,
Deep river, Lawd,
Deep river, Lawd,
I want to cross over in a ca'm time.
I'm gonna meet death smilin', I'm gonna meet death smiling Lawd, I'm gonna meet death smilin', Lawd, I want to cross over in a ca'm time.
My mother's done crossed over, My mother's done crossed over, Lawd, My mother's done crossed over, Lawd, She's done crossed over in a ca'm time.
And sometimes, it seems, one's father "has done crossed over," and one's sister, brother, aunty, and cousins, along with the elders and the deacons of the church.
[595]
