EricksonKey signature: E flat major (3 flats)Meter: 188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206Public Domain1. I am just a lonesome trav’ler, Through this big, wide world of sin; Want to join that grand procession, When the saints go marching in.Refrain: Oh, when the saints go marching in, Oh, when the saints go marching in; Lord, I want to be in that number, When the saints go marching in.2. All my folks have gone before me, All my friends and all my kin; But I’ll meet with them up yonder, When the saints go marching in.3. Come and join me in my journey, ’Cause it’s time that we begin; And we’ll be there for that judgment, When the saints go marching in.
