Glory Glory

“Glory Glory” appears on Harry Smith’s “Anthology of American Folk Music” as track No. 49 “Since I Laid My Burden Down.” It was originally recorded in Chicago on December 4, 1928 by The Elders McIntorsh and Edwards’ Sanctified Singers. It’s also a song that I recorded with the Byrds on our “Byrdmaniax” album in 1971.
Lyrics:
[G] Glory, glory, Halleluja [C] since I laid my burden [G] down
Glory, glory, [Em] Halleluja since I [D] laid my burden [G] down

Well I feel so much better, so much better
since I laid my burden down
I feel so so much better, so much better
since I laid my burden down

Glory, glory….

Thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus
Help me lay my burden down
I wanna thank you Jesus
I wanna thank you Jesus
Help me lay my burden down

Glory, glory…
