She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain
Folk Song

She'll be coming round the mountain
When she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain
When she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain,
She'll be coming round the mountain,
She'll be coming round the mountain
When she comes

She'll be driving six white horses
When she comes
She'll be driving six white horses
When she comes
She'll be driving six white horses,
She'll be driving six white horses,
She'll be driving six white horses
When she comes

Oh, we'll all go out to meet her
When she comes
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her
When she comes
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her,
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her,
Oh, we'll all go out to meet her
When she comes

She'll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes
She'll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes
She'll be wearing red pajamas,
She'll be wearing red pajamas,
She'll be wearing red pajamas
When she comes

She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes
She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes
She will have to sleep with Grandma,
She will have to sleep with Grandma,
She will have to sleep with Grandma
When she comes

Notes

Katie wrote: "Learned from my grandpa (born in 1907):

Oh we'll kill the old red rooster when she comes...

Oh we'll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes..."

Thanks for sharing those lines Katie! -Mama Lisa
