SWING DOWN SWEET CHARIOT

Chorus:
Why don't you (F) swing down sweet chariot and let me ride,
(C7) Swing down sweet chariot and let me ride.
(F7) Rock me Lord, (Bb) rock me Lord, (F) calm and easy,
Well (G7) I've got a home on the (C7) other (F) side.

(F) Well, well, (swing, swing, swing)
Well, well, well, well. (swing, swing, swing)
(F) Ezekiel went down in the middle of the field,
He saw an angel workin' on a chariot wheel,
Just wanted to see how a chariot feel.

Chorus

(F) Well, well, (swing, swing, swing)
Well, well, well, well. (swing, swing, swing)
(F) Ezekiel went down and got on board,
Chariot went a bumpin' and on down the road.
Zeke wasn't so particular 'bout the bumpin' on the road,
Just wanted to lay down his heavy load. 

Chorus

(F) Well I got a father in the Promised Land,
(C7) 'aint gonna stop until I shake his hand.
(F7) Rock me Lord, (Bb) rock me Lord, (F) calm and easy,
Well (G7) I've got a home on the (C7) other (F) side.
