Golden Slippers

Album: Come Share the Fire

Lyrics

v1) Oh, my golden slippers are laid away Cuz I don’t ‘spect to wear ‘em till my weddin’ day And my long tail coat that I love so well Gonna wear up in the chariot in the morn And my long white robe that I bought last June I’m gonna trade it in 'cause it fits too soon And my old gray horse that I used to ride Gonna hitch him to the chariot in the morn

CH: Oh, them golden slippers (x2) Gonna wear my golden slippers because they sound so neat Oh, them golden slippers (x2) Golden slippers dancin’ down the heavenly street

v2) Oh my old banjo hangs on the wall Cuz it ain’t been tuned since a-way last fall And the folks all say there’ll be music in the air When we ride up in the chariot in the morn There’s ol’ brother Ben and his sister, Lou The preacher and his wife and the whole darn crew What a big camp meetin’ there will be that day When we ride up in the chariot in the morn

CHORUS

v3) So it’s good-bye, children, I have to go Where the rain don’t fall and the wind don’t blow And your fancy clothes you will not need When you ride up in the chariot in the morn But your golden slippers must be nice and clean Your age must be just sweet sixteen If you wanna go with ‘em then you gotta keep the rhythm When you ride up in the chariot in the morn

CHORUS
