MICHAEL, ROW DE BOAT ASHORE

There had to be enough verses to get across the river or sound. Allen et al., 1874, give 29. Each verse repeated once.

1. Michael, row de boat ashore, Hallelujah!
2. Michael boat a gospel boat, Hallelujah!
3. I wonder where my mudder deh (there), Hallelujah!
4. See my mudder on de rock qwine home, Hallelujah!
5. On de rock gwine home in Jesus' name, Hallelujah!
6. Michael boat a music boat, Hallelujah!
7. Gabriel blow de trumpet horn, Hallelujah!
8. O you mind your boastin' talk, Hallelujah!
9. Boastin' talk will sink your soul, Hallelujah!
10. Brudder lend a helpin' hand, Hallelujah!
11. Sister, help for trim dat boat, Hallelujah!
12. Jordan stream is deep and wide, Hallelujah!
13 Jesus stand on t' oder side, Hallelujah!
14. I wonder if my massa deh, Hallelujah!
15. My fader gone to unknown land, Hallelujah!
16. O de Lowd he plant his garden deh, Hallelujah!
17. He raise de fruit for you to eat, Hallelujah!
18. He dat eat shall neber die, Hallelujah!
19. When de riber overflow, Hallelujah!
20. O poor sinner, how you land?, Hallelujah!
21. Riber run and darkness comin', Hallelujah!
22. Sinner row to save your soul, Hallelujah!
Additional:
Michael, haul de boat ashore, ...
They you'll hear the horn they blow, ...
Then you'll hear the trumpet sound, ...
Trumpet sound the world around, ...
Trumpet sound for rich and poor, ...
Trumpet sound the jubilee, ...
Trumpet sound for you and me, ...

The brief version in the DT seems to have been edited for choir use. The Georgia Sea Islands cd has an unusual version where some lines start with A'

Dicho,

this set of lyrics and a few more verses were in a thread not too long ago called "Michael row the boat ashore"

I looked at the DT Lyrics and found a very abbreviated version. I should have checked the threads. Sorry.

Hi, Dicho - it has some shortcomings and it has been down for part of the weekend, but the Digitrad and Forum Search (SuperSearch) is the best search engine we have for most things.

Dicho,

whatever you do, don't get gunshy. You've been adding some good stuff. Keep it up. We've all probably missed something that was on an older thread at one time or another.
