Words and Music by Thos. L. Mack.,

In this world of care and trouble there's heaps of strife and sin,
For as soon as you are born, from that day on all your trouble does begin;
So prepare yourself for the judgment day, save your pennies, boys,
Buy yourself a carpet sack, pick up your duds and go.

Then hurry on to glory, now, children, don't be slow.
When the roll is call'd on the judgment day,
Pick up your duds and go.

And when you get up to heaven, mind, now, don't you get too gay.
Or particular 'bout your food, don't put on style, case de Lord don't like no dudes;
'Twas just there unhappy old Satan liv'd many years ago.
He did sin, and the Lord made him pick up his duds and go.-Chorus.
