Chorus: Oh, when the saints [oh, when the saints]
Go marching in [go marching in],
Oh, when the saints go marching in [marching in],
Oh, I want to be in that number [Oh Lord]
When the saints go marching in.

I am just a weary pilgrim,
. . . this . . . land,
Getting ready for the journey
When the saints go marching in.


Oh, my mother, may God bless her,
. . .
. . .
When the saints go marching in.
