Jesus Chariot, She comes around the Mountain – lyrics, transcribed

next question would be to ask, what it has to do with:  Birth of a Nation and Amos and Andy. To quote C-Man:

“interesting that he picked Birth of a Nation, a film as controversial today as it was then, if not even more so due to todays inexplicable tendencies to over PC eVerYthIng. Some works of the past are so socially offensive by todays standards that they have been suspended/censored from publicaton to the general public.. Amos and Andy being a perfect example. They were two black geniuses of humor but their work is nearly unknown today because the stereo typing of their characters is considered embarrassingly offensive to our racially sensitive culture despite the fact that much/most of their humor poked fun at those very stereo types.”

here some transcribed lyrics, and thanks to those who know it!
