John Brown's Body

John Brown's body lies a-molderin' in the grave (3x)
But his soul goes marching on

  Glory, glory hallelujah (3x)
  His soul goes marching on

He captured Harper's Ferry with his nineteen men so true
He frightened old Virginia 'til she trembled through and through
They hanged him for a traitor, themselves the traitor's crew
His soul goes marching on

The stars above in Heaven are a-lookin' kindly down (3x)
On the grave of old John Brown

He's gone to be a soldier in the army of the Lord (3x)
His soul goes marching on
