She’ll Be Comin’ ‘Round the Mountain (and songwriting exercise explanation)

This song was adapted from a Spiritual, called “When the Chariot Comes” probably in the late 1800s, though no one really knows. It was first printed in 1927. Here are the lyrics to some of the verses that people have come up with over the years. Guess what the chord progression is… 🙂 The key in the video is C. She’ll be coming ’round the mountain when she comes, (when she comes). She’ll be coming ’round the mountain when she comes, (when she comes). She’ll be coming ’round the mountain, she’ll be coming ’round the mountain, She’ll be coming ’round the mountain when she comes, (when she comes). The same structure is repeated with the following verses: She’ll be drivin’ six white horses when she comes, etc. Oh we’ll all come out to meet her when she comes, etc. She’ll be wearing red pajamas when she comes, etc. We will kill the old red rooster when she comes, etc. We’ll be havin’ chicken and dumplings when she comes, etc. She will have to sleep with Grandma when she comes, etc. We’ll be shoutin’ “Halleluja” when she comes, etc.

    Practice writing lyrics that have absolutely nothing to do with anything you’ve actually experienced. This could really add more variety to your lyric writing. Was it something experienced by someone you know? Write about it.
