Ce gospel américain très connu a été repris par d’innombrables artistes. La version des Pretty Things doit sûrement quelque chose à celle de Johnny Cash, sortie en 2010 sur son album posthume American VI: Ain’t No Grave.

Paroles

When I look down the river
What do you think I see?
See a band of angels
Comin’ after me

Look out yonder, Gabriel
Put your feet on land and see
Gabriel, don’t you blow that trumpet
’til you hear from me

Ain’t no grave keep my body down
There ain’t no grave keep my body down

When I hear that trumpet sound
Gonna drive right out of the ground
There ain’t no grave can keep my body down

Well, meet me, Jesus, meet me
In the middle of the darkest hour
And give my wings and save me
Save me from the darkest power

Leave me, mother, father
Leave me down the river road
And make it known mama be there
When I share my load

There ain’t no grave can keep my body down
Ain’t no grave keep my body down


Come Into My KitchenAin’t No GraveFaultline
