I'll beat my drum
Everybody had come running in
I'll beat my drum
All the day

I'll rise, I'll rise
I'll rise in the morning
Take the good news
And carry it away
Take the good news
And spirit it away

Farmer shall wear
The green of his furrows
Ploughman shall heed
His teams through the day
Honour shall still his dangerous arrow

Take the good news and spirit it away
Take the good news and carry it away

And O brother where have you been?
Down at the gate a-windin'
O my father what shall I do?
Set 'em straight or no more souls come through

I'll beat my drum
Everybody had come running in
I'll beat my drum
All the day

I'll rise, I'll rise
I'll rise in the morning
Take the good news
And carry it away
Take the good news
And spirit it away
