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,
2. Gonna lay down my sword and shield
3. Gonna try on my long white robe
4. Gonna try on my starry crown
5. Gonna put on my golden shoes
6. Gonna talk with the Prince of Peace
7. Gonna shake hands around the world
