Down By the Riverside

Lyrics

(African American Spiritual)

I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield,
Down by the riverside, down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside,
I’m gonna lay down my sword and shield,
Down by the riverside.

I ain’t gonna study that war no more,
I ain’t gonna study that war no more,
I ain’t gonna study that war no more. (repeat)
