The Blood-Strained Banders

If you want to go to heaven
Just over on the other shore,
Keep out the way of the blood-strained banders
O good Shepherd, feedin' my sheep.

cho: Some for Paul, some for Silas
     Some for to make-a my heart rejoice;
     Don't you hear lambs a-cryin'?
     O good Shepherd, feedin' my sheep.

If you want to go to heaven
Just over on the other shore,
Keep out the way of the gunshot devils
O good Shepherd, feedin' my sheep.

If you want to go to heaven
Just over on the other shore,
Keep out the way of the long-tongued liars
O good Shepherd, feedin' my sheep.

From Our Singing Country, Lomax. Collected from Lightnin'
   Washington, TX 1933
Note: Should be "blood-stained", of course. AJS
