American Ballads and Folk Songs
I ain't never been to heaven but Ah been told,
Comin' fuh to carry me home, <Dat de streets in heaben am paved with gold,
Comin' fuh to carry me home.
Chorus:
Swing low, sweet chariot, Comin' fuh to carry me home, Swing low, sweet chariot, Comin' fuh to carry me home.
Dat ain't all, I got mo' besides—
Ah been tuh de ribber an* Ah been baptize'.
Lemme tell yuh whut's a mattah o' fac',
Ef yuh evah leaves de debbil, yuh nevah go back.
[6o9]
