Walking on de Rainbow in de Sky.
Copyright, MDCCCXC1V, by Henry J. Wehman.
Words by Chas. Edwards. Music by Geo. C. Edwards.

I went up to heaven. Peter wouldn't let me in,
Walking on de rainbow in de sky.
He said. "No, nigger, you're loaded down with sin,"
Walking on de rainbow in de sky.
It's a crooked road, you have to stand in line,
No pushing or no shoving, you must take your time;
When Peter shakes his head, 'tis then de bells will ring,
And you hear de angels sing:

Come all you children, come all you children,
Come all you children, we will reach there by and by;
Oh! come along, you children; come along, all you children,
And you had better not slip, or you will cut your upper lip,
When you're walking on de rainbow in de sky.

A big fat nigger, and his name was Samuel Right,
Walking on de rainbow in de sky:
As black as coal, and always full of fight,
Walking on de rainbow in de sky.
Peter said to Right, it's chickens you did steal.
And grabbed 'em by de neck, so they couldn't squeal,
Then Peter slammed the gate, and all de bells did ring.
Then we heard de angels sing: Chorus.

When it rains up in heaven all de niggers have to work.
Walking on de rainbow in de sky;
A hose in your hand, you wear a big red shirt,
Walking on de rainbow in de sky.
To wash de clouds, and make the stars to shine,
From seven in do morning until after nine,
And when de sun am out, And all de bells do ring,
Then you hear de angels sing:- Chorus.
