"TRAVELLING SHOES"

after a song by Vera Hall Ward

Death went out to the sinner’s house,
Come and go with me
Sinner cried out, I’m not ready to go,
Ain’t got no travellin’ shoes.
Got no travellin’ shoes, got no travellin’ shoes
Sinner cried out, I’m not ready to go
I ain’t got no travellin’ shoes

 

Death went out to the gambler’s house,
Come and go with me
The gambler cried out, I’m not ready to go,
Ain’t got no travellin’ shoes.
Got no travellin’ shoes, got no travellin’ shoes
Sinner cried out, I’m not ready to go
I ain’t got no travellin’ shoes

 Death went out to the preacher’s house,
Come and go with me
The preacher cried out, I’m not ready to go,
Ain’t got no travellin’ shoes
