Ain't No Grave (also known as Gonna Hold This Body Down) is a traditional American gospel song attributed to Claude Ely (1922-1978) of Virginia. Claude Ely describes composing the song while sick with tuberculosis in 1934 when he was twelve years old. His family prayed for his health, and in response he spontaneously performed this song. Many notable artists have performed the song, including Johnny Cash on the posthumous album American VI: Ain't No Grave. Today we get to hear Jamie Wilson's version.
