I shall not be moved

Well lordy I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved

Just like a tree that's growin' in the meadow (down by the water)
I shall not be moved

I'm on my way to glory land and I shall not be moved
On my way to glory land I will not be moved

I'm like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved

Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

I shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved

Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Well I'm on my way to glory land and I shall not be moved
On my way to glory land I shall not be moved

I'm like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Oh wellI shall not be, I shall not be moved
I shall not be, I shall not be moved

Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

On this rock of ages, I shall not be moved
On this rock of ages, I shall not be moved

Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Glory, glory, glory hallelujah, I shall not be moved
Glory hallelujah, I shall not be moved

Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved

Beautiful. I first heard this on an album of union-organizer songs, but it's been used by lots of folks.

Anybody who's had to stand firm in hard times, and I guess that's all of us.
