UB40 - Swing Low Lyrics

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry he home

I looked over Jordan and what did I see
Coming for to carry he home
A band of angels coming after me
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

If you get there before I do
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all my friends I'm coming too
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home

  55. DJHaz Beats

    This is a classic, I love this song. I play it really loud on my stereo system and it sounds awesome.

  56. Paul Brightone Ahao

    I'ts sand that the pain of makers of the original song endured that has been forgotten and now their sweet soundly words are stolen from them by a white man and claimed under their name

    Amin Mecci

    Brighquan Emperio who wrote this song and what pain did they endure ?

    Jamie Newton

    Shut up you little pussy whole

    wing mcwingerson

  57. Mike

    Rest in peace. It was an honour to carry you into church today. Miss you. Sorry we couldn't save you. I tried my best to get the emergency services to you in time. I managed to find two first aiders within minutes, but the odds were tragically stacked against us all. You were too badly injured :-(

  63. Ulises Candelario Martinez

    saludos desde México the best music

  64. Gloria Todd

    this song sounds so mush better than the other awsome

  65. Steven Decube

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swing_Low,_Sweet_Chariot - It's an 'American Negro Spiritual' song! How ironic is it that the song is most associated with the English Rugby Union Team - a predominantly 'white' sport.... Great track though I didn't realise it was from 2003

    G I G H T K I N N

    A predominantly 'white' sport... Dominated by the All Blacks!

    K Paul

    Up the All Blacks!

    Pasqualino Greco

    we all bleed red in sports

    Pasqualino Greco


    G I G H T K I N N

    All Blacks are white too

  66. Even Stephen

    sounds like one dance

  67. Black Pill

    Elina Refit

    I love this song

  70. Anthony Enos

    makes me wanna praise Jesus!

  71. Royal Coyote

    Its English and will be for as England Stands

    Thomas Simms

    this was a song sang by slaves waiting for a chance to escape from slavery that the English had for the most part them in. i find it ironic that you think this song should stand for England. but i guess to each his own or what he/she thinks is hos own#

    Peter Kehoe

    +Thomas Simms +The Wolf is referring to the fact that Swing Low and this version is the supporters anthem of English rugby.

    Royal Coyote

    Yes thanks peter 

    BadcatV smith

    Thomas Simms bless.
    That was then.
    This is now.
    England - our rugby anthem.

    Head The Ball,

    bobobob83 Bob's definetaly your aunty not yer uncle,🤣😃😂


    You know this isn’t a rugby song right. It’s an anthem to freedom sung by slaves.

  74. Paula Samples

    my father in laws song

  75. Paula Samples

    my father in laws song

  76. hellobabe7

    Best version to me!❤️

    Jack Macaulay

    hinatababe97 it is isn’t it

  77. Cee Dee

    Rick Ali you are an idiot.  UB40 are singing the song not claiming it. Maybe a look at this will help you.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swing_Low,_Sweet_Chariot

  78. Jonic Auramental Hedgehog III

    I finally found that song tails was singing from adventures of sonic the hedgehog e.27: Boogy-mania!

  79. Rick Ali

    its a american song who the fuck is english to claim it

    Harry Rayner

    you really are thick not everything on wiki is true you can edit it and it doesnt say who claims the song so your digging yourself a hole

    Harry Rayner

    id rather not thanks


    are you doin this just to stir up the wog? the song was a mournful song of hope by US slaves. when they heard it sung in the fields by the women only they knew an underground railroad "train" was stopping to pick up slaves trying to escape. who cares? it's beautiful. enjoy it and your rugby!


    Rick Ali It's called a cover and an English version!! Tell that to all the rich, popular and famous singers doing the same to other songs. It's not like UB40 said this was an original of theirs! This is by far the best version.

    Ro Maniac

    Why are you so butthurt?

  80. rex de leeuw

    hello im rex de leeuw i have cancer :( its my birthday today i want 1 present ub40 come to my house :) but i know it cant

  83. supascholesey

    Didn't play this around the ground after we one. Shocking. Best country World Cup song seen fee lions and they didn't even play it when we lifted the trophy. So disappointing

  84. Wellington Sharpe
