American Ballads and Folk Songs
OP Satan's a-settin' on a red-hot seat, A-coolin' of his head an' a-warmin' of his feet.
I rather pray myself away,
Dan live an' burn in hell one day.
Oh, hell is deep an' hell is wide, Oh, hell ain' got no bottom or side.
Two milk-white hosses, side by side, Me an' my Jesus gwineter take a ride.
King Jesus give me a little broom, Jes' fer to sweep my heart clean.
What kin' o' shoes does de angels wear? Don' wear none, case dey walks on de air.
One o' dese mornin's bright an' fair, Gwineter hitch on my wings an' try de air.
When I gits to heaven, got nothin' to do But fly aroun' an' sing hallelu.
Away up in heaven where I'm gwineter shout, Nobody dere to put me out.
I haven' been to heaven, but I've been tol', De streets in heaven are paved in gol'.
I want to go to heaven at my own expense,
Ef I cain' git through the gate, I'll jump de fence.
When I go to heaven, I want to go right, I want to go to heaven all dressed in white.
When I git to heaven, gwineter take my stan', Gwineter wrastle wid my Lawd like a nachul man.
When I git to heaven, gwineter sit an' tell, Tell dem angels ring dem bells.
[590]
