English
A A

Oh, Dem Golden Slippers

Oh, my golden slippers am alaid away
Kase I don't spect to wear 'em till my weddin' day
And my long tall 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 gwine to get changed cause it fits too soon
And de old grey horse dat 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 gwine to wear bekase dey look so neat
Oh, dem golden slippers, oh, dem golden slippers
Golden slippers I'se gwine to wear to walk de golden street
 
Oh, my ol' banjo hangs on de wall
Kase it ain't been tuned since way last fall
But de darkies all say we'll hab a good time
When we ride up in the chariot in de morn
 
There's old Brother Ben and his sister Luce
Dey will telegraph the news to Uncle Bacco Juce
What a great camp meetin' dere will be dat day
When we ride up in the chariot in de morn
 
Oh, dem golden slippers, oh, dem golden slippers
Golden slippers I'se gwine to wear bekase dey look so neat
Oh, dem golden slippers, oh, dem golden slippers
Golden slippers I'se gwine to wear to walk de golden street
 
So, it's goodbye, children, I will have to go
Whar the rain don't fall and de wind don't blow
And your ulster coat, why, you will not need
When you ride up in the chariot in de morn
 
But de golden slippers must be neat and clean
And yer age must be just sweet sixteen
And yer white kid gloves yer will have to wear
When you ride up in the chariot in de morn
 
Oh, dem golden slippers, oh, dem golden slippers
Golden slippers I'se gwine to wear bekase dey look so neat
Oh, dem golden slippers, oh, dem golden slippers
Golden slippers I'se gwine to wear to walk de golden street
 
Oh, dem golden slippers, oh, dem golden slippers
Golden slippers I'se gwine to wear bekase dey look so neat
Oh, dem golden slippers, oh, dem golden slippers
Golden slippers I'se gwine to wear to walk de golden street
 
Thanks!
