Representative Text

1 Don't call the roll, John,
Till I get there,
Don't call the roll, John,
Till I get there,
Ain't that a pity, Lord!
Sin and a shame,
Sinner man so hard believe.

2 Don't ring them chiming bells,
Till I get there,
Don't ring them chiming bells,
Till I get there,
Ain't that a pity, Lord!
Sin and a shame,
Sinner man so hard believe.

3 Don't stretch that dividing line,
Till I get there,
Don't stretch that dividing line,
Till I get there,
Ain't that a pity, Lord!
Sin and a shame,
Sinner man so hard believe.
