Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
Old Moses he am calling,
He am calling me away, I hear it all the night time
And I hear it all the day.
I don't mind this here journey,
It will not be for long, But when I take this journey
I want my fiddle along.
I ain't got much to leave you,
I gave my soul away, But that fiddle was my company
Through many a weary day.
And when I go to heaven,
It will not now be long, I'll leave all else behind me
But I want that fiddle along.
The ague and the rheumatiz Have done got in my bones,
And the only medicine that I know Am that ole fiddle's tones.
And when the harps and seraphs
Are where they all belong, Oh then I'll be so happy
To have that fiddle along.
