Now Let Me Fly


(African American Spiritual)

Way down yonder in de middle o’ de fiel’
Angel workin’ on a chariot wheel,
Not so partic’lar ’bout workin’ at de wheel
But I jes’ want to see how de chariot feel.

Now let me fly, now let me fly
Now let me fly into Mount Zion
Lord, Lord.

I got a mother in de Promise Lan’
Ain’t gonna stop till I shake her han’
Not so partic’lar ’bout shakin’ her han’
But I jes’ wanta get up in de Promise Lan’ Refrain

Meet dat hypocrite on de street
First thing he do is show his teeth.
Nex’ thing he do is to tell a lie
An’ de bes’ thing to do is to pass him by. Refrain
