‘Roun’ About De Mountain

Arranged & Interpreted by Roland Hayes
Text: African-American folk song

‘Roun’ about de mountain,
‘Roun’ about de mountain,
My God’s a-rulin’,
An’ we’ll (she’ll) rise in His arms.
‘Roun’ about de mountain,
‘Round about de mountain,
My God’s a rulin’,
An’ we’ll (she’ll) rise in His arms.

De Lord loves de sinna,
De Lord loves de sinna man,
De Lord loves de sinna,
An’ we’ll (she’ll) rise in His arms

When I was a sinna
A seekin’ jes a like you,
I went down in de valley
I prayed till I come through,
You hypocrite, you concubine,
You’re placed amongst de swine,
You go to God with your lips an’ tongue
But you leave yo’ heart behin’

De Lord loves de sinna,
De Lord loves de sinna man,
De Lord loves de sinna,
An’ we’ll (she’ll) rise in His arms;

‘Roun’ about de mountain
‘Roun’ about de mountain
My God’s a-rulin’,
An’ we’ll (she’ll) rise in His arms

Goin’ roun’ de mountain,
There I’ll take a my stan’
I heard de voice of Jesus,
Thank God He’s in dis lan’

De Lord loves de sinna,
De Lord loves de sinna man,
De Lord loves de sinna,
An’ we’ll (she’ll) rise!
