He’s gone to be a soldier in the Army of the Lord,
His soul goes marching on.

John Brown’s knapsack is strapped upon his back,
His soul goes marching on.

John Brown died that the slaves might be free,
His soul goes marching on.

The stars above in Heaven now are looking kindly down,
His soul goes marching on.
