Riding in the Heavenly Row-Boat.
Copyright, 1894, by Spaulding & Gray.
Words and Music by Barney Fagan.

Riding in the heavenly row-boat, heading for the promised land,
Guided by the heavenly music played by the Big Black Angel Band;
Dip my feet in Jordan's water, draw the sin from my body out,
Then I'll enter, pure and spotless, that place niggers all dream about.

Wait 'till Zion's ready, then pull long and steady,
Hug the shore, look out, don t get out where the current's strong,
There the danger's lurking, keep them oars a working.
Don't you bob your head around, but speed that boat along.

Riding in the heavenly row-boat, steering for the golden shore,
Get on board, repentant sinners, jump in position, grab an oar:
Wait 'till you hear old Gabriel's trumpet toot, then dip, don't you dip too deep.,
As you pass on through Hell Gate, don't wake satan up, let him sleep.- Chorus.
