Let me go down to the river and pray


from w,
A song is buzzing in my head.

As I went down to the river to pray
A E
Studyin about that good ol' way

And who shall wear the starry crown
B A E
Good Lord show me the way!

B A E
O sisters let's go down
A E B E
Lets go down, Come on down
B A E
O sisters lets go down
E B E
Down in the river to pray


Chord progression is the same in the rest of the verses…

As I went down in the river to pray
Studyin about that good ol way
And who shall wear the robe & crown
Good Lord show me the way

O brothers lets go down
Let's go down, Come on down
O brothers lets go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studyin about that good ol way
And who shall wear the star and crown?
Good lord show me the way

O fathers lets go down
Let's go down, Come on down
O fathers lets go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol way
And who shall wear th robe and crown
Good Lord show me the way

O mothers lets go down
Come on down, don't you wanna go down?
O Mothers lets go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studin about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the star and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O sinners lets go down
Lets go down, come on down
O sinners lets go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studyin about that good ol way
And who shall wear the Robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

Hello Child of Fiji,
Yesterday was a blast from the past when Rev Josateki's voice was on SBS radio in Australia and the need for a reconciliation from hurts way back in about 1989! Perhaps the current situation can be a time of revisiting relationships where there has been much pain and a need to say 'sorry'.
