American Ballads and Folk Songs
Fetch, me a pair of shoes,
Place them on-a my servant's feet. .
Now, servant, please set down."
"My Lawd, you know
That you promise me,
Promise me a long white robe
An* a starry crown."
"Go yonder, angel,
Fetch me a starry crown,
Place it on-a my servant's head. . .
Now, servant, you set down,"
"My Lawd, you know
That you promise me,
Promise me a long white robe
An' a golden waistband."
"Go yonder, angel,
An' fetch me a golden waistband,
Place it 'round my servant's waist. . . .
Now, servant, you set down."
OH, LAWD, HOW LONG?
