SWEET LOVE, SWEET CHARIOT



Aquest conegut espiritual negre té el seu origen en una cançó que una tribu de l’actual Rhodesia cantava quan el seu cap moria. En el temps de l’esclavatge va ser adaptada a les creences cristianes pels primers negres que es van convertir al cristianisme. Ha estat versionada infinitat de vegades. Eric Clapton va fer una versió amb un toc reggae en el seu vinil There’s One In Every Crowd

SWEET LOVE, SWEET CHARIOT
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

Looked over Jordan what do I'd see
Coming for to carry me home
A band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

I looked up over Jordan and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home
I saw a band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

I looked over Jordan what do I see
Coming for to carry me home
A band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
