When the chariot comes negro spiritual?

The printed version of the song titled - She\'ll be coming round the mountain that appeared in the American song bag in 1927 (owner - Carl Sandburg) was inspired by a similar song that was believed to be written in the 1800s. This song was based on an old Negro anthem titled - When the Chariot comes which is often sung in melody. It was quite famous and spread quickly through the Appalachian trail, and the lyrics were modified. The later versions were quite popular in work gangs, especially in the midwestern United States in the 1890s.
