Though it originated as a Christian hymnit is often played by jazz bands. This song was famously recorded on May 13,by Louis Armstrong and his orchestra. The origins of this song are unclear. 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. The earliest versions were slow and stately, but as time passed, the recordings became more rhythmic, including a distinctly uptempo version by the Sanctified Singers on British Parlophone After Youve Gone - Louis Armstrong - When The Saints Go Marching In Even though the song had folk roots, a number of composers claimed copyright in it in later years, including Luther G.
Presley  and Virgil Oliver Stamps R. A jazz standardit has been recorded by many jazz and pop artists. As with many numbers with long traditional folk use, there is no one "official" version of the song or its lyrics. This extends so far as confusion as to its name, with it often being mistakenly called "When the Saints Come Marching In.

Often the first two words of the common third verse line "Lord, how I want Arrangements vary considerably. The simplest is just an endless repetition of the chorus. Verses may be alternated with choruses, or put in the third of four repetitions to create an AABA form with the verse as the bridge.
Some traditional arrangements often have ensemble rather than individual vocals. It is also common as an audience sing-along number. Versions using call and response are often heard, e. The response verses can echo the same melody or form a counterpoint melody, often syncopated opposite the rhythm of the main verses, and a solo singer might sing another counterpoint melody solo soprano or tenor as a 3rd part in more complex arrangements.
