  1. She'll be comin' round the mountain, when she comes,
when she comes.
She'll be comin' round the mountain, when she comes,
when she comes.
She'll be comin' round the mountain,
She'll be comin' round the mountain,
She'll be comin' round the mountain, when she comes,
when she comes.
 
 
2.
She'll be drivin' six white horses when she comes;
Whoa back!
She'll be drivin' six white horses when she comes;
Whoa back!
She'll be drivin' six white horses,
She'll be drivin' six white horses,
She'll be drivin' six white horses when she comes;
When she comes, whoa back!
 
  3. Oh we'll all come out to meet her when she comes;
Hi there.
Oh we'll all come out to meet her when she comes;
Hi there.
Oh we'll all come out to meet her,
Oh we'll all come out to meet her,
Oh we'll all come out to meet her when she comes;
When she comes, hi there, whoa back!
 
  4. We will kill the old red rooster when she comes;
Hack, hack!
We will kill the old red rooster when she comes;
Hack, hack!
We will kill the old red rooster,
We will kill the old red rooster,
We will kill the old red rooster when she comes;
When she comes, hi there, whoa back, hack, hack!
 
  5. We will all have chicken and dumplings when she comes;
Yum, yum.
We will all have chicken and dumplings when she comes;
Yum, yum.
We will all have chicken and dumplings,
We will all have chicken and dumplings,
We will all have chicken and dumplings when she comes;
When she comes, hi there, whoa back, hack, hack, yum, yum.

Hallelujah!
We will shout "Hallelujah" when she comes;
Hallelujah!
We will shout "Hallelujah,"
We will shout "Hallelujah,"
We will shout "Hallelujah" when she comes;
When she comes, hi there, whoa back, hack, hack, yum, yum, Hallelujah!
