She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Phil Lesh and Friends in 2013 at a hoe-down with the Terrapin Family Band. I've no idea what lyrics they sang. These are the first printed lyrics in Carl Sandburg's 1927 "American Songbag":

She'll be coming round the moutain when she comes
She'll be coming round the moutain when she comes
She'll be coming round the moutain
She'll be coming round the moutain
She'll be coming round the moutain when she comes

She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes
She'll be driving six white horses
She'll be driving six white horses
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes

Oh we'll all go to meet her when she comes
Oh we'll all go to meet her when she comes
We will kill the old red rooster
We will kill the old red rooster
And we'll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes
