The Kingdom Whar' de Good Folks Go.
Copyright, 1894, by J. H. Meehan.
Words and Music by J. H. Meehan.

Get down your family bible, and give up your wicked ways.
And prepare yourself for glory bye and bye;
Sing glory hallelujah in a mighty song of praise.
And the angels they will join you in de sky.
Come, you sinners, and prepare, there'll be trouble in de air,
So get ready, for de trumpet's gwine to blow;
For the sinners that am late has to knock upon the gate
Of de kingdom whar de good folks go.

When you travel 'cross the river Jordan,
Keep your eye upon the golden sun And don't be slow.
Don't you worry, move on in a hurry.
And get ready for the kingdom whar' de good folks go.

Don't linger any longer on de crooked path of sin,
Or the dibbel's bound to get you bye and bye;
Turn towards the light of glory, for I know they'll let you in.
And put golden wings upon you when you die.
There's old Peter you must greet, you must bow low when you meet;
You must humble down before him mighty low:
Don't forget to bend your knee, for he holds de golden key
Of de kingdom whar' de good folks go.- Chorus.

The book of Moses tells you if your soul you want to save.
You must travel with the hallelujah band:
If you want to go up yonder when you lise up from the grave,
Do not pester with the chickens in dis land.
Climb up, sinners, all de way, while de sun shines make de hay.
While you journey in dis wicked world of woe;
With the white folks we will shine-they don't draw no color line
In de kingdom whar' de good folks go.- Chorus.
