"RIDE ON MOSES"

from « Spirituals »
by William Stickles, 1948

I’ve been traveling all this day
Ride on Moses
To hear the good folks sing and pray
Want to go home in the morning
They pray’d so long I couldn’t wait
Ride on Moses
I knew the Lord would walk that way
Want to go home in the morning

  Then ride on, ride on,
Ride on, Moses
Ride on, King Emmanuel,
Want to go home in the morning

 When I got there, Satan was there
Ride on Moses
I’m goin’ to take the golden car
Want to go home in the morning
I lay my old sins on the shelf
Ride on Moses
And stand right up and shake myself
Want to go home in the morning
