Attention ! This is not the version !

: We are trav'ling in the footsteps

Of those who've gone before

But we'll all be reunited (But if we stand reunited)

On a new and sunlit shore (Then a new world is in store)

V: O when the Saints go marching in

When the Saints go marching in

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

And when the sun refuse (begins) to shine

And when the sun refuse (begins) to shine

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

When the moon turns red with blood

When the moon turns red with blood

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

On that hallelujah day

On that hallelujah day

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

O when the trumpet sounds the call

O when the trumpet sounds the call

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

B: Some say this world of trouble

Is the only one we need

But I'm waiting for that morning

When the new world is revealed

(As Intro)

V: When the revelation (revolution) comes

When the revelation (revolution) comes

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

When the rich go out and work

When the rich go out and work

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

When the air is pure and clean

When the air is pure and clean

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

When we all have food to eat

When we all have food to eat

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

When our leaders learn to cry

When our leaders learn to cry

O Lord I want to be in that number

When the Saints go marching in

    We are trav'ling in the footsteps

    Of those who've gone before,

    And we'll all be reunited,

    On a new and sunlit shore,

    Oh, when the saints go marching in

    Oh, when the saints go marching in

    Lord, how I want to be in that number

    When the saints go marching in

    And when the sun refuse to shine

    And when the sun refuse to shine

    Lord, how I want to be in that number

    When the sun refuse to shine

    And when the moon turns red with blood

    And when the moon turns red with blood

    Lord, how I want to be in that number

    When the moon turns red with blood

    Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call

    Oh, when the trumpet sounds its call

    Lord, how I want to be in that number

    When the trumpet sounds its call

    Some say this world of trouble,

    Is the only one we need,

    But I'm waiting for that morning,

    When the new world is revealed.

    Oh When the new world is revealed

    Oh When the new world is revealed

    Lord, how I want to be in that number

    When the new world is revealed

    Oh, when the saints go marching in

    Oh, when the saints go marching in

    Lord, how I want to be in that number

    When the saints go marching in

    Often the first two words of the common third verse line ("Lord, how") are sung as either "Oh, Lord" or even "Lord, Lord."

    Arrangements vary considerably. The simplest is just an endless repetition of the chorus. Verses may be alternated with choruses, or put in the third of 4 repetitions to create an AABA form with the verse as the bridge.

    One common verse in "hot" New Orleans versions runs (with considerable variation) like thus:

    I used to have a playmate

    Who would walk and talk with me

    But since she got religion

    She has turned her back on me.

    Some traditional arrangements often have ensemble rather than individual vocals. It is also common as an audience sing-along number. Versions using call and response are often heard, e.g.:

    Call: Oh when the Saints

    Response: Oh when the Saints!

    "Here Comes Santa Claus". Hey, it's Saint Nick... and gifts - which the Saints certainly gave New Orleans. (Heard your song on the radio last night. Just three notes, and I thought of you.)
