             (grave)(hold my)

[CHORUS]
              
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down        

[VERSE]

When I hear that trumpet sound
I'm gonna rise right out of the ground
Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

[VERSE]

Well, look way down the river
And what do you think I see
I see a band of angels
And they're coming after me

[CHORUS]

Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

[VERSE]

Well, look down yonder, Gabriel
Put your feet on the land and sea
But Gabriel, don't you blow your trumpet
Until you hear from me

[CHORUS]


There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

[INSTRUMENTAL] optional: sounds best with a metal slide

[VERSE]

Well meet me, Jesus, meet me
Meet me in the middle of the air
And if these wings don't fail me,
I will meet you anywhere


[CHORUS]

Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down


[VERSE]

Well meet me, Mother and Father,
Meet me down the river road
And Mama, you know that I'll be there
When I check in my load


[CHORUS]
   
Ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down
There ain't no grave
Can hold my body down

[OUTRO] slowing down gently (optional: end with metal slide)
