LYRICS

Oh, my golden slippers am laid away 'Cause I don't spect to wear 'em til my wedding day And my long tailed coat, that I love so well I will wear up in the chariot in the morn. And my long white robe that I bought last June I'm goin' to get changed 'cause it fits too soon And the old grey hoss that I used to drive I will hitch him to the chariot in the morn. Oh, dem golden slippers Oh, dem golden slippers Golden slippers I'se goin' to wear Because they look so neat. Oh, dem golden slippers Oh, dem golden slippers Golden slippers I'se goin' to wear To walk the golden street. Oh, my old banjo hangs on the wall 'Cause it ain't been tuned since way last fall But the darks all say we'll have a good time When we ride up in the chariot in the morn. There's ol' brother Ben and his sister, Luce They will telegraph the news to uncle Bacco Juice What a great camp meetin' there will be that day When we ride up in the chariot in the morn. So, it's good-bye, children I will have to go Where the rain don't fall and the wind don't blow And yer ulster coats, why, you will not need When you ride up in the chariot in the morn. But yer golden slippers must be nice and clean And yer age must be just sweet sixteen And yer white kid gloves you will have to wear When you ride up in the chariot in the morn.
