GONE TO GLORY
Traditional, Trinidad

If not today He'll come another day,
Me Jesus gone to glory to come another day.
Moses and Aaron dey do de Lawd's command,
But me Jesus gone to glory to come another day.

Tell dem, tell dem, tell dem, me Leader,
Sinners a-got to pray.
Tell dem, tell dem, tell dem, me Leader,
Jesus bound to come again.

Simon Peter walk on de water,
'Til he began to sink.
When he start to sink he holler for murder,
Jesus bound to come again.

If not today He'll come another day,
Me Jesus gone to glory to come another day.
Moses and Aaron dey do de Lawd's command,
But me Jesus gone to glory to come another day.

With musical score 4/4; no. 13, pp. 22-23.
Edric Connor, coll. and edited, Songs from Trinidad, arr. for voice, guitar, drum and base by Gareth Walters.
