You may bury me in the East,
You may bury me in the West,
But I'll hear that trumpet sound
In that morning.

Father Gabriel in that day
He'll take wings and fly away,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.
You may bury him in the East,
You may bury him in the West;
But he'll hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.

Chorus:
In that morning, my Lord,
How I long to go,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.

Good old Christians in that day,
They'll take wings and fly away,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.
You may bury them in the east,
You may bury them in the West;
But they'll hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.

Chorus:
In that morning, my Lord,
How I long to go,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.

Good old preachers in that day,
They'll take wings and fly away,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.
You may bury them in the east,
You may bury them in the West;
But they'll hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.

Chorus:
In that morning, my Lord,
How I long to go,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.

In that dreadful judgement day,
I'll take wings and fly away,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.
You may bury me in the east,
You may bury me in the West;
But I'll hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.

Chorus:
In that morning, my Lord,
How I long to go,
For to hear the trumpet sound
In that morning.
