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.

    What Do Want To Learn Most About Songwriting?

  • Songwriter Tip:

    Here’s a tip to help you begin to learn to write for films. Find a movie that you really enjoy, that you really get into. Rent the movie and put it into your VCR. Turn the sound off and run the film with only the pictures to inspire you. Try putting a towel over the face of the TV and listen to only the soundtrack. Be sure to have a notebook and pen when you do this. If nothing comes to you, don’t give up. Get a different movie and try again.
