Oh my golden slippers
Am alaid away,
Kase I don't 'spect to wear 'em
Till my wedding day,
An' my long tail'd coat,
Dat I lov'd so well,
I will wear up in de chariot in de morn.
An my long white robe
Dat I bo't last June,
I'm gwine to git chang'd
Kase it fits too soon,
An de old gray hoss
Dat I used to drive,
I will hitch him to de chariot in de morn

Refrain:
|: 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. :|

2. Oh my ole banjo
Hangs on de wall,
Kase it ain't been tuned
Since way last fall,
But de darks all say
We will hab a good time,
When we ride up in de chariot in de morn.
Dar's ole Brudder Ben
And Sister Luce,
Dey will telegraph de news
To Uncle Bacco Juice,
What a great camp meetin'
Dere will be dat day,
When we ride up in de chariot in de morn.
Refrain:
3. So it's good-bye, Chillun,
I will have to go,
Whar de rain don't fall
Or de Wind don't blow,
An' yer ilster coats,
Why yer will not need,
When yer ride up in de chariot in de morn.
But yer golden slippers
Must be nice an' clean,
An' yer age must be
Just sweet sixteen,
An' yer white kid gloves
Yer will have to wear,
When yer ride up in de chariot in de morn.
Refrain:
