Chorus:
Go on, and I'll go with you,
Open your mouth and I'll speak for you:
Lord, if I go and tell them what you say,
They won't believe in me.

1 Sister, you ought to been down to the spring,
To see me try on my golden wings. [Chorus]

2 Brother, you ought to been down to the spring,
To see me try on my golden wings. [Chorus]

3 You ought to been down in Egyptland,
To see me try on my gold waistband. [Chorus]

4 I heard a mighty rumbling under the ground,
It must be the devil turning round. [Chorus]

5 I heard a mighty rumbling up in the sky,
It must be Jehovah passing by. [Choruus]
