Paddle for the Golden Shore.
Copyright, 1883, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by C Clare. Music by F. C. Andrews.

Oh, de gospel stream am deep an' wide,
Come along and cross wid me;
For it am far to the odder side,
Whar you know you'll like to be.
Don't stop to fool nor stop to rest,
Soon the chance you'll git no more;
I tell you chillen it am best
To paddle for de golden shore.

Paddle for de golden shore, children,
Paddle for de golden shore,
Oh, pull away strong, but don't steer wrong
While you paddle for de golden shore.

Take care for snags, don't run aground,
Always keep a good look-out,
For if you don't, you'll surely drown'd,
Nebber mind how much you shout
Just put your shoulder to de wheel,
Trabble on while odders snore;
If you git left, my! won't you squeal,
So paddle for de golden shore.-Chorus.

Look out den, brudders, don't get caught,
Tell you dar's no time to stay;
A brimstone bed am mighty hot,
Listen now to what I say :
Oh, too much heat am not so nice,
Mebbe you know dat before,
Down in dat place dey don't keep ice,
So paddle for de golden shore.-Chorus.
