Some notes on the lyrics:

The origins of the traditional Gospel song Down By The Riverside  go back to the 80s of the 19th century and originally it was sung as a work song. As with many Gospel songs its author and history are chiefly unknown. Its hook „Gonna lay down my burden, Down by the riverside” refers to the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan and to another passage from the Bible, where a soldier lays down his arms by the river and is being baptized - a downright pacifist theme:

1. Gonna lay down my burden,
Down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside.
Gonna lay down my burden,
Down by the riverside,
Down by the riverside.
Chorus:
I ain't go study war no more,
study war no more,
ain't go study war no more.
I ain't go study war no more,
study war no more,
ain't go study oh war no more.

2. Gonna lay down my sword and shield
Down by the riverside...
Chorus

3. Gonna try on my long white robe
Down by the riverside...
Chorus

4. Gonna try on my starry crown
Down by the riverside...
Chorus

5. Gonna put on my golden shoes
Down by the riverside...
Chorus

6. Gonna talk with the Prince of Peace
Down by the riverside...
Chorus

7. Gonna shake hands around the world
Down by the riverside...
Chorus
