Refrain:
Oh, my Good Lord's done been here!
Blessed my soul and gone away,
My Good Lord's done been here,
Blessed my soul and gone.
Oh, my Good Lord's done been here!
Blessed my soul and gone away,
My Good Lord's done been here,
Blessed my soul and gone.

1 When I get up in Heaven
And a my work is done,
Going to sit down by Sister Mary,
And chatter with the darling Son. [Refrain]

2 Hold up the Baptist finger,
Hold up the Baptist hand,
When I get in the Heavens,
Going a-join the Baptist Band. [Refrain]

3 You may be a white man,
White as the drifting snow,
If your soul ain't been converted,
To Hell you're sure to go. [Refrain]

Folk Songs of the American Negro (No. 1), 1907
