Swing Low, Sweet Chariot: chords and words


Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

D                          G   D
Swing low, Sweet Chariot
D                                  A
Coming for to carry me home
           D              G   D
Swing low, sweet chariot
D                     A          D
Coming for to carry me home

    D                                 G             D
I looked over Jordan and what did I see?
D                                  A
Coming for to carry me home
    D                    G                 D
A band of angels coming after me
D                     A          D
Coming for to carry me home

If you get to heaven before I do
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all my friends that I’m coming too
Coming for to carry me home

Sometimes I’m up, sometimes I’m down
Coming for to carry me home
In my heart I know I’m heaven bound
Coming for to carry me home

    It’s a good old 1-4-5 folk rhythm. And that is all I use when I play it in ‘F’ are the three major chords in that key; F-Bb-C, and it works fine without undergoing mid song key change. Just sing the seventh into it. This method also gives room for vocal personalizing of the song.
