Sweet Chariot

This song is by Emmylou Harris and appears on the album The Ballad Of Sally Rose (1985).

(Paul Kennerley - Emmylou Harris)

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 fall 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.

--- Instrumental ---

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
The flesh will fall 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.

Swing down sweet chariot
The flesh will fall 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...
