Go Down Moses Lyrics

by Louis Armstrong

Go down Moses way down in Egypt land
Tell all Pharaohs to let My people go

When Israel was in Egypt land
Let My people go
Oppressed so hard they could not stand
Let My people go

So the God seyeth, Go down, Moses way down in Egypt land
Tell all Pharaohs to let My people go

So Moses went to Egypt land
Let My people go
He made all Pharaohs understand
Let My people go

Yes The Lord said, Go down, Moses way down in Egypt land
Tell all Pharaohs to let My people go

Thus spoke the Lord, bold Moses said
Let My people go
If not I'll smite, your firstborns dead
Let My people go

God, The Lord said, Go down, Moses way down in Egypt land
Tell all Pharaohs to let My people go

Tell all Pharaohs to let My people go
