Sitting On de Golden Fence.
Copyright. 1884, by Spear & Dehnhoff.
Written and Composed by A. Wiggins.
Oh, I shall see that promis'd land, sitting on de golden fence,
Awaiting for de color'd hand, sitting on de golden fence.
Put away my old gray coat, for no more I'se gwine to vote,
Wash my hands wid scented soap, sitting on de golden fence.
Come and kiss me, Dinah, darling,
I shall meet you bye-and-bye;
I can hear dem bells a ringing, ringing over yonder,
Sitting on de golden fence.
Oh, put some b'ar's grease on my hair, sitting on de golden fence,
I want to look nice when I get dar, sitting on de golden fence.
Gabriel sure will let me in, for no more I'se gwine to sin,
I shall hear dem angels singing, sitting on de golden fence.-Chorus.
