Comment: Jake and the Jackhammers was the college

band for which I was the keyboard player and singer.

Our take on this classic. Remember it was the 80's.




Swing Low

by Matt Carter


Newspaper said another child was dead

Wonder when the killing will cease

I think we're still slaves

heading towards our graves never to really know some peace.


I get so tired of the bullets that are fired

at people I don't even know

I'm tired of the lies

the useless enterprise

Oh god I want to go home


Swing low

Sweet chariot

Comin for to carry me home

Swing low sweet chariot

coming for to carry me home
