Down to the River to Pray Songtext

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol′ way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way!

O sisters let's go down
Let′s go down, come on down
O sisters let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O brothers let′s go down
Let′s go down, come on down
Come on brothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray


As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol′ way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O fathers let's go down
Let′s go down, come on down
O fathers let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol′ way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

O mothers let's go down
Come on down, don't you wanna go down?
Come on mothers, let′s go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol′ way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord show me the way


O sinners, let's go down
Let′s go down, come on down
O sinners, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good ol′ way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord show me the way

Die englische Textversion ist ein totales Desaster. Offenbar hat sich jemand mit nur rudimentären Englischkenntnissen drangesetzt und aufgeschrieben, was er geglaubt hat zu verstehen, dazu mit massenhaft orthographischen Fehlern.
Denn was zum Teufel soll z.B. bedeuten "Who show wear the story crow"? Korrekt heißt es immer wieder und wieder: "Who shall wear the starry crown". Die deutsche Übersetzung hingegen ist korrekt (???).

Rebecca Dean,

Alison Krauss I love your song so bad the choir that i'm in at my church we sing your song all the time on fifth sunday but we didn't do it this fifth sunday because everybody wasn't there.
