When The Saints Go Marching In

Oh when the saints go marching in, when the saints go marching in
Lord I want to be in that number, when the saints go marching in

I am just a lonesome traveler in this big wide world of sin
Want to join that grand procession, when the saints go marching in
Oh when the saints go marching in, when the saints go marching in
Lord I want to be in that number, when the saints go marching in

All my folks have gone before me, all my friends and all my kin
But I'll meet with them up yonder, Oh when the saints go marching in
Oh when the saints go marching in, when the saints go marching in
Lord I want to be in that number, when the saints go marching in

Come and join me in that journey, cause it's time that we begin
And we'll be there for that judgment, when the saints go marching in
Oh when the saints go marching in, when the saints go marching in
We will be in line for that judgment, when the saints go marching in

And when the stars begin to shine, when the stars begin to shine
We will be in line for that judgment, when the stars begin to shine

And when Gabriel blows his horn, when Gabriel blows his horn
Lord let me be in that number when Gabriel blows his horn

And when the sun refused to shine, when the sun refused to shine
Oh Lord let me be in that number, when the sun refused to shine

And when the moon has turned to blood, when the moon has turned to blood
Oh Lord let me be in that number, when the moon has turned to blood

And when they crown Him King of Kings, en they crown Him King of Kings
Oh Lord let me be in that number, when they crown Him King of Kings

Oh when the saints go marching in, when the saints go marching in
Lord I want to be in that number, when the saints go marching in
