[Intro]
D  G  D  A
 
[Verse 1]
D                                  G                     D
She used to say she was an orphan, never was exactly the truth
                                                    A
It’s just her mother got tired tired of her hanging around
       D
So she wound up living in a home for girls
  G                      D
A straight hair kid in a house full of curls
                      A               D
A straight haired kid always hanging around
 
 
[Chorus]
D                     G         D
She’d sing swing low, sweet chariot
                    A        D
She’s coming for to carry me home
 
 
[Verse 2]
D                                              G                 D
So the first chance she got she said I do to a tall town boy who said me too
                                                                  A
Honorable mention all district quarterback he said I’ll carry you away
             D                                           G
She left him drunk on a stool in a county line bar going on about high school
D                                     A                     D
How he was a star she just got tired, tired of him hanging around
 
 
[Chorus]
D                     G         D
She’d sing swing low, sweet chariot
                    A        D
She’s coming for to carry me home
 
 
[Verse 3]
          G                                  D
She got a job at a Dairy Queen, had two baby boys two more diamond rings
                       A             D
The husbands they were brave but she split that one horse town
         G                    D                         A         D
Just got tired all the people hanging around split that one horse town
 
 
[Instrumental]
D      G          D          A
 
 
 
[Verse 4]
D                                               G
Well now she lives outside LA with a broke down baseball player
        D                                             A
Used to play double A, religious man, never drinks or swears
          D
But she’s tired of all the talk about her getting saved
G                                D
Tired of all the talk about revelation days
             A                     D
She’s tired, tired of him hanging around
 
 
[Chorus]
D                     G         D
She’d sing swing low, sweet chariot
                    A        D
She’s coming for to carry me home
 
 
[Chorus]
D                     G         D
She’d sing swing low, sweet chariot
                    A        D
She’s coming for to carry me home
 
 
[Outro]
D  G  D
   A  D
