Sweet Chariot Lyrics

Artist: Emmylou Harris
Album: The Ballad Of Sally Rose

Oh my darlin' I have searched the desert and the sky
Just to find you and take the mourning from my eyes
When I lost you I suffered and you were sanctified
We are all born to live we are all bound to die
Swing down sweet chariot the flesh will afll and the bones will rot
But from my sorrow you'll carry me not
My heart is bound my soul is chained to the rock
Rock of ages cleft for me I swung down my hammer out in Joshua Tree
It rang on the mountain and rolled to the sea and it will ring from the rock
[ mandolin ]
Oh my children sorrow shall come to each of us
All our trials will soon lay buried in the dust
Long forgotten but quick as silver turns to rust
Love is found when the heart is lost
Swing down sweet chariot...
Swing down sweet chariot...
