1. John Brown's body lies a mouldring in the grave, (3x)
but his soul is marching on.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
But his soul is marching on.
2. The stars of heaven are looking kindly down. (3x)
on the grave of old John Brown.
3. He's gone to be a soldier in the army of the Lord. (3x)
and his soul goes marching on.
