“When the Saints Go Marching In” (song)

"When the Saints Go Marching In” is a popular song in New Orleans. The song is responsible for the nickname of the New Orleans Saints football team, and for the city nickname, Saint City.

Marching songs were extremely popular during and after the Civil War. “When Johnny Comes Marching Home,” “Marching Through Georgia” and “Marching to Zion” are three of the most famous of these songs. “On, on, on, ye saints, go marching, Soon your Saviour’s face you’ll see” was printed in the book Revival and Camp Meeting Minstrel (1867). “When the Saints Go Marching Home” (to the tune of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home") was published in the Latter-Day Saints’ Millennial Star on March 27, 1869.

“When the Saints Are Marching In” (1896), with lyrics by Katharine Purvis (1842-1907) and music by James Milton Black (1856-1936), is generally credited to be the origin of the song. However, none of the verses are sung today. The chorus is:

“When the saints are marching in,
When the saints are marching in,
What a wonderful chorus thro’ the sky shall ring,
When the saints are marching in.”


A song titled “When the Saints Come Marching In” was printed in The Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY) on March 27, 1898. It is clear the the saints come marching in on judgment day, although there is no biblical passage about marching saints. “When, in the revelation of the coming glory, John saw the saints come marching home to Jerusalem they came as their Lord had come, with rejoicing, bearing palms in their hands, the emblem of victory” was printed in The Courier-Journal on April 4, 1898.

A song titled “When the Saints Come Marching Home” was printed in the Mattoon (IL) Gazette on December 29, 1899. “I said surely when the last great trumpet shall sound, and the Saints go marching in, there will be many in that Heavenly host from Laurel, Mississippi” was printed in the Laurel (MS) Leader on January 18, 1907. A song titled “When the saints go marching in” was printed in the South Missourian-Democrat (Alton, MO) on October 2, 1913.

Songs of His Coming (1919) by Thoro Harris has the song “Marching In,” but the page shows “Copyright 1925.” The lyrics are familiar: “When the saints go marching in when the saints go marching in, Lord, I want to be among that number, when the saints go marching in.”

A song titled “When the Saints go Marching In” was printed in The Black Dispatch (Oklahoma City, OK) on January 28, 1921. “When the Saints are marching home, Lord, I wonder if I am in that number, When the Saints are marching home” was printed in an obituary notice in the Charleston (SC) Evening Post on March 21, 1921. “Want to be in that number when the saints go marching home” was printed in the Norfolk (VA) Journal and Guide on May 28, 1921. A song titled “When the Saints go Marching” was printed in The Fort Scott Tribune and the Fort Scott Monitor (Fort Scott, KS) on June 21, 1921. A song titled “When the Saints Go Marching Home” was printed in The Daily Graphic (Pine Bluff, AR) on August 4, 1921. A song titled “When the Saints Go Marching Home” was printed in the Muscatine (IA) Journal and News-Tribune on October 5, 1921. A song titled “When the Saints Go Marching In” was printed in The Negro Star (Wichita, KS) on February 3, 1922.

“When the Saints Go Marching In” was recorded in 1923 by the Paramount Jubilee Singers on Paramount 12073. Louis Armstrong recorded the song on May 13, 1938 on Decca records. There have been many other version recorded by many artists.

Although the lyrics to the song have frequently changed through the years, it appears that the popular form (with the chorus, “I want to be in that number when the saints go marching in") was known by at least 1921.


Wikipedia: When the Saints Go Marching In
“When the Saints Go Marching In,” often referred to as simply “The Saints,” is a black spiritual. Though it originated as a Christian hymn, it is often played by jazz bands. This song was famously recorded on May 13, 1938, by Louis Armstrong and his orchestra.

The song is sometimes confused with a similarly titled composition “When the Saints Are Marching In” from 1896 by Katharine Purvis (lyrics) and James Milton Black (music).

Origins and usage
The origins of this song are unclear. It apparently evolved in the early 1900s from a number of similarly titled gospel songs, including “When the Saints Are Marching In” (1896) and “When the Saints March In for Crowning” (1908). The first known recorded version was in 1923 by the Paramount Jubilee Singers on Paramount 12073. Although the title given on the label is “When All the Saints Come Marching In”, the group sings the modern lyrics beginning with “When the saints go marching in”. No author is shown on the label. Several other gospel versions were recorded in the 1920s, with slightly varying titles but using the same lyrics, including versions by The Four Harmony Kings (1924), Elkins-Payne Jubilee Singers (1924), Wheat Street Female Quartet (1925), Bo Weavil Jackson (1926), Deaconess Alexander (1926), Rev. E. D. Campbell (1927), Robert Hicks (AKA Barbecue Bob, 1927), Blind Willie Davis (1928), and the Pace Jubilee Singers (1928).

Wikipedia: Katharine Purvis
Katharine Elinda Nash Purvis (May 19, 1842 - October 23, 1907) is best known as the lyricist for When the Saints Are Marching In.

Wikipedia: James Milton Black
James Milton Black (19 August 1856 – 21 December 1938) was an American composer of hymns, choir leader and Sunday school teacher.
(...)
The lyrics to When the Saints are Marching In are by Katharine Purvis. This song is not to be confused with “When The Saints Go Marching In,” which was published afterwards in 1927 with similar words and music, certainly derivative.

Where might they have learned it? Or who might have created it? Researchers believe it has its origins in the Bahamas, but somehow migrated to the mainland. Whatever the case, a song published in 1896 bears an uncanny similarity: “When the Saints Are Marching In,” music by James M. Black and words by Katherine E. Purvis, published Curtis & Jennings in Cincinnati, Ohio. Its chorus spoke of “Joyful songs of salvation thro’ the sky shall ring.” Another piece by Black, “When the Roll is Called Up Yonder,” published in 1893, bears some relationship to the song we all know.

In the cauldron of creativity we simplify by the name of culture, the piece appeared in other published permutations: “When the Saints March In for Crowning” (1908), “When All The Saints Come Marching In” (1923), “When the Saints Go Marching Home” (1927), and, finally, “When the Saints Go Marching In” as part of Edward Boatner’s hymn book Spirituals Triumphant - Old and New, in 1927. A female gospel quartet recorded a version in 1925, and several bluesmen, including “Barbecue Bob” Hicks, gave their stamp to the tune during the late 1920s.

THOSE MARCHING SAINTS
by Thomas Cunniffe
(...)
However, one will search Revelation in vain to find the image of marching saints; instead it is Satan’s army who marches around the saints, only to be wiped out by fires sent from Heaven. It’s hard to say where the concepts of marching saints originated, but it may have come from this song. It all depends on when the “Saints” was composed. Louis Armstrong remembered singing it at the Colored Waifs Home (the orphanage where he learned to play cornet) so that puts the probable composition date earlier than 1913. But as Armstrong historian Ricky Riccardi points out, there were many song titles featuring marching saints in the titles, including 1896’s “When the Saints Are Marching In” and 1908’s “When the Saints March In For Crowning”. We may never know if “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In” predates these other songs.

Thus, the theme song of Central Plaza and Stuyvesant Casino, on Friday nights, is “When The Saints Come Marching In.” The published version of this old marching hymn is credited to Edward C. Redding, but most jazzmen are convinced the song just grew. Whatever its origin, it is scarcely a lyric of complication or intricacy. But the Dixieland buffs on Second Ave. know every word of every chorus, the principal one of which goes as follows:

I am just a weary pilgrim
Plodding through this world of sin,
Getting ready for that city,
When the saints come marching in.
When the saints come marching in,
When the saints come marching in,
Oh I want to be in that number

Pg. 397:
“When the Saints Go Marching In” (1896), the most famous and often performed of all Dixieland jazz pieces, is credited to Katherine E. Purvis (lyric) and James M. Black (music), though the authorship has long been questioned. It is known that the song was played by Negro bands in New Orleans by the late 1890s and was often used as a funeral hymn even though it is far from melancholy or solemn. The rousing number looks forward to joining along with all the saints that go parading by on Judgment Day. It is a favorite of jazz musicians because of the way its simple rising and falling rifts can be used to improvise endless variations on the melody. Over the years, the song has been most associated with Louis Armstrong, who first recorded it in 1930 and performed it throughout his long career. In addition to concerts, parades, nightclubs, and an occasional funeral, “When the..the Saints Go Marching In” was used in several films, most prominently by the Hall Johnson Choir in Green Pastures (1936), Mario Lanza and company in The Seven Hills of Rome (1958), Armstrong and Danny Kaye in The Five Pennies (1959) Louis Prima and the chorus in Hey Boy, Hey Girl (1959), and Elvis Presley in Frankie and Johnny (1966) and on the soundtrack of Lucky Lady (1975). Among the many recordings over the years are those by such diverse talents as the New Orleans Jazz Band, the Isley Brothers, Fats Domino, the Weavers, Andy Griffith, Tiny Tim, Queen Esther Marrow with the Harlem Gospel Singers, Jerry Lee Lewis, Gladys Knight, the Kingston Trio, and Trini Lopez.

When the Saints Go Marching In
music by J. M. Black, 1895

1. I am just a weary pilgrim,
plodding through this world of sin;
Getting ready for that meeting
when the saints go marching in.

CHORUS:
When the saints go marching in,
O, when the saints go marching in,
Lord, I want to be in that number
when the saints go marching in.

2. Up there I’ll see the Savior
Who redeemed my soul from sin;
With extended hands He’ll greet me
when the Saints go marching in.

3. We are treading on the pathway
Of the saints gone on before;
But we’ll meet again together
Over on the golden shore.

When the Saints Go Marching In
Hey! We are following the footsteps
of those who’ve gone before
and we’ll all be reunited
on that new and sunlit shore.

Chorus:
Oh, when the saints go marching in,
oh, when the saints go marching in.
Oh, Lord, I want to be in that number
when the saints go marching in.

And when the sun refuse to shine,
and when the sun refuse to shine
Oh, Lord, I want to be in that number
when the sun refuse to shine.

Oh, when the trumpet sound its call,
oh, when the trumpet sounds its call.
Oh, Lord, I want to be in that number
when the trumpet sounds that call.

Some say this world of trouble

is the only world we need,
But I’m waiting for the morning
when the new world is revealed.

Oh, when the new world is revealed,
oh, when the new world is revealed.
Oh, Lord, I want to be in that number
when the new world is revealed.

A song from 1999 CD “Home Recordings”.
He was singing this song with Red West, then home on furlough from the Army, and Arthur Hooten. Recorded just days after the Million Dollar Quartet session (1956), it has much the same feel. Toward the end, Elvis lampoons the untutored congregational singing he’d heard growing up, but the mimicry is more affectionate than sarcastic. There was more to this tape, but sadly someone recorded half-an-hour of Elvis shooting pool over the other songs.

Story behind the song: ‘When the Saints go Marching In’
Posted Oct 23, 2014 at 9:41 PM
The task of discovering the actual origin of “When the Saints Go Marching In” is a difficult one. The song’s history has sometimes been confused with the origin of “When the Saints ARE Marching In,” written by James M. Black and Katherine Purvis. They are totally different songs.

It was a New Orleans-style celebration in the White House Monday, Aug. 9, 2010 as the President hosted the 2009 Super Bowl champions, the New Orleans Saints. The team entered the East Room, crowded with members of the media while the U.S. Marine Band appropriately played “When the Saints Go Marching In.” The length of the title has caused some New Orleans residents to simply refer to the song as “Saints.”
