Representative Text

1 What kind o' shoes you going to wear?
Them golden slippers:
What kind o' shoes you going to wear?
Them golden slippers;
Golden slippers I'm bound to wear,
Out shine the glittering sun.

Chorus:
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, my Lord,
I'm going to join that heav'nly choir;
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, my Lord,
I'm a soldier of the cross.

2 What kind o' robe you going to wear?
That long white robe;
What kind o' robe you going to wear?
That long white robe;
Long white robe I'm bound to wear,
Out shine the glittering sun. [Chorus]

3 What kind o' crown you going to wear?
That starry crown;
What kind o' crown you going to wear?
That starry crown;
Starry crown I'm bound to wear,
Out shine the glittering sun. [Chorus]

4 What kind o' belt you going to wear?
That gold waist band;
What kind o' belt you going to wear?
That gold waist band;
Gold waist-band I'm bound to wear,
Out shine the glittering sun. [Chorus]
