Wake me --
Want to go to heaven when I die --
Wasn't that a mighty day --
We are climbing Jacob's ladder --
Were you there? --
We shall walk through the valley --
What shall I do? --
When I'm dead --
When the train comes along --
Where shall I go? --
Wish I's in heaven settin' down --
Witness --
Workin' on the railroad line --
Yo' low down ways --
You'd better min' --
You'd better run --
You hear the lambs a-crying --
You may bury me in the east --
You're my brother, so give me your han'.
