Watch the new Neil Young & Crazy Horse video for Jesus' Chariot (She’ll Be Coming Round The Mountain), a track from the forthcoming album Americana (June 5th).
From the Liner Notes:
Written in the 1800s based on an old Negro spiritual, this song refers to the second coming of Jesus and “she” is the chariot Jesus is coming on. Some interpret this as the end of the world. Others have said that “she” refers to union organizer Mary Harris “Mother” Jones going to promote formation of labor unions in the Appalachian coal mining camps. The Americana arrangement continues the folk process with a new melody, a new title and a combination of lyric sources.
