Don't You See The Bright Light?
Copyright, 1890, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words and Music by Gussie L. Davis.

Hurry up and don't be late,
Buy a ticket for the golden gate;
I must go, I cannot wait,
Do not miss this train.
Soon she'll whistle "down the brakes,"
Goodness! but she takes the cake;
You'll be dead and buried
'Fore she comes this way again.

REFRAIN.
Don't you see the bright light shining over yonder, children?
Farewell, good-bye, for then I'm going home!
Don't you see the bright light shining over yonder, children?
Farewell, good-bye, for I am going home!

Packed up my old "grip "last night,
Not a hen-roost was in sight;
I must leave this world all right,
Keep my 'counts all straight.
When old Gabriel blows his horn,
Have your "trav'ling dusters" on;
I'll write you a letter
When I reach dat golden gate.-Refrain.
