I WANT TO MOAN RIGHT ON THAT SHORE

I want to moan right on that shore, (twice)
I want to moan for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

My mother she died right on that shore (twice)
My mother she died for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

I want to pray, etc.
I want to kneel, etc.
I want to stand, etc.
I want to build, etc.

Quartet; Joe Brown, Janes Richardson, Willie Howard and Paul Perkins. Many partial repetitions in arrangement. Florida State Prison, Raiford, Florida.
John and Ruby Lomax 1939 Southern States Recording Trip. Click on Links at top of page and go to Lomax Collection for notes and sound.

Hi, Dicho: Different sources, same songs. I find it interesting that you're posting prison versions, and field recordings of songs, and I'm pulling them off of black gospel quartet recordings. This song was recorded, among others, by the Soul Stirrers, with Sam Cooke singing lead. Guess I'll have to pull out my CD and write down the lyrics. At this point, I'll hae a whole shead of songs for the Gospel Messengers to learn..

I'll get back, after I get the time to write down the words..

Jerry

Jerry, I'll post the words.

I'M GONNA BUILD ON THAT SHORE
(The Soul Stirrers, rec. 1951)

Well, I'm gonna build right on that shore,
I'm gonna build right on that shore.
I'm gonna build for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

I'm gonna pray right on that shore,
I'm gonna pray, child, right on that shore.
Well, I'm gonna pray for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Well, I was walking down the road one day,
When I heard the Master's voice.
Spirit came upon me, filled my heart with joy,
I started off to Canaan on that celestial shore.
I'm gonna build for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Just let me build right on that shore,
I wanna build right on that shore.
I'm gonna build for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Let me pray right on that shore,
Oh, I'm gonna pray right on that shore.
Lord, I'm gonna pray for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Well, I stood upright and I stood for God,
And I'm standing here today,
Tell you where my Jesus walked
On that straight and narrow way.

I can't turn back and won't turn around,
Gonna stand right on that shore.
I'm gonna stand for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Let me stand right on that shore,
Oh, let me stand right on that shore.
Said I wanna stand for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Well, when this building is completed,
Going home to live with God,
Tell you about my troubles
Down in this land I toil.

Just so I can feast at Zion,
Gonna live forevermore.
I'm gonna live for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Well, I'm gonna build right on that shore,
Oh, I'm gonna build right on that shore.
I'm gonna live for my Jesus,
For my Jesus evermore.

Thanks, Masato:

I was just heading down stairs to pull out one of my Soul Stirrers CDs to transcribe the lyrics. You saved me a little time. Now that I think of it, I think that I'll post a thread asking for the lyrics to I'm Determined by the non-Sam Cooke Soul Stirrers. Maybe you have them. It's a real pleasure seeing you all over the place. I never see you ask a question. I assume that's because you alread have everything that you want or need. If not, if I have anything I can share with you, let me know.

Jerry

Before I started listening to a lot of "source" recordings, I heard Sonny Terry sing that one accompanied by Pete seeger. Loved it, learned it, still sing it.

Under the title 'I'm Gonna Build Right on Dat Shore', it was also recorded twice for Paramount by the Virginia gospel group Norfolk Jazz/Jubilee Quartet - in 1924 and 1927. Reissues may be found on Vol 2 (Document DOCD-5382) and Vol 4 (DOCD-5384) of their complete recorded works.

I have three recordings of Sonny Terry's doing this.

1) the one mentioned with Pete Seeger
2) one where he is alone on his HARMONICA & VOCALS SOLO Folkways EP
3) one with BROWNIE McGee on their gospel album.

They are all great but I am prejudice and love Sonny Terry.

Thanks for the lyrics. Im not a musician. I love old time gospel music, especially groups. I get cds and I like to get the words to sing along. Could you refer me to books or articles about histor of gospel singers or groups, particularly obscure groups that never made it into mainstream?

Hi, Rahima -
A lot of the gospel songs that have been recorded, are not available in hymnals or songbooks. You might like the five-volume Country & Western Gospel Hymnal, which does have a lot of the songs that show up on recordings.
I don't know of a good book about gospel singers, but the Wikipedia page on American Gospel Singers will keep you busy for a long, long time.
-Joe-
