She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain

Here are some of the most popular verses that you will hear today for this favorite 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

We’ll be singing hallelujah when she comes
We’ll be singing hallelujah when she comes
We’ll be singing hallelujah
We’ll be singing hallelujah
We’ll be singing hallelujah when she comes

Oh we’ll all go out to meet her when she comes
Yes we’ll all go out to meet her when she comes
Oh we’ll all go out to meet her
Yes we’ll all go out to meet her
Oh we’ll all go out to meet her when she comes

She’ll be wearing pink pajamas when she comes
She’ll be wearing pink pajamas when she comes
She’ll be wearing pink pajamas
She’ll be wearing pink pajamas
She’ll be wearing pink pajamas when she comes

Oh she’ll have to sleep with Grandma when she comes
Yes she’ll have to sleep with Grandma when she comes
Oh she’ll have to sleep with Grandma
Yes she’ll have to sleep with Grandma
Oh she’ll have to sleep with Grandma when she comes

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

The song itself has been around for a long, long time, and often sung with other verses not so widely remembered today. For instance, here is a wonderfully fun version from 1926, as recorded by “The Hillbillies” (later known as Al Hopkins and his Buckle Busters).

Some less-well known verses to the tune, which I actually remember singing as a kid:

Oh the bride is going to be here pretty soon
Yes the bride is going to be here pretty soon
Oh the bride is going to be here
We’ll all be glad to see her
Oh the bride is going to be here pretty soon

We’ll be singing and a’ dancing when she comes
We’ll be singing and a’ dancing when she comes
We’ll be singing and a’ dancing
Folks will be romancing
While we’re singing and a’ dancing when she comes

We will kill the old red rooster when she comes
Yes we’ll kill the old red rooster when she comes
We’ll kill the old red rooster
We’ll kill the old red rooster
And we’ll all have chicken and dumplings when she comes
