Down to the River to Pray

Full Text

1 As I went down to the river to pray,
studyin' about that good ole way
and who shall wear the starry crown,
good Lord, show me the way.
O sisters, let's go down,
let's go down, come on down,
Come on, sisters, let's god down,
down to the river to pray.

2 As I went down to the river to pray,
studyin' about that good ole way
and who shall wear the starry crown,
good Lord, show me the way.
O brothers, let's go down,
let's go down, come on down,
Come on, brothers, let's god down,
down to the river to pray.

3 As I went down to the river to pray,
studyin' about that good ole way
and who shall wear the starry crown,
good Lord, show me the way.

Come on, fathers, let's god down,
down to the river to pray.

4 As I went down to the river to pray,
studyin' about that good ole way
and who shall wear the starry crown,

Come on, mothers, let's god down,
down to the river to pray.

5 As I went down to the river to pray,
studyin' about that good ole way

Come on, sinners, let's god down,
