Traditional. I transcribed this from the Just a Closer Walk with Thee album by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, 1957.


I shall not, I shall not be moved.
I shall not, I shall not be moved.
Just like a tree planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.

Jesus is my captain, I shall not be moved.
King Jesus is my captain, I shall not be moved.
Just like a tree planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.

Sanctified and holy, I shall not be moved.
Sanctified and holy, I shall not be moved.
Just like a tree planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.

I am living holy, I shall not be moved.
I am living holy, I shall not be moved.
Just like a tree planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.

I shall not, I shall not be moved.
I shall not, I shall not be moved.
Just like a tree planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.

On my way to Heaven, I shall not be moved.
On my way to Heaven, I shall not be moved.
Just like a tree planted by the water,
I shall not be moved.
