Thread Name: Soldier Bible Card Deck Song
Subject: RE: Soldier Bible Card Deck Song
Duke, perhaps you or someone else who appreciates this song might know of this old one collected in the 1920s and sung by Ed Lloyd (Af-Am). I'll give one verse here:

You can play the ace and tray,
But it sho' will lead you astray.
It's awful sad when the Holy Ghost is gone.

White gave four verses, but I think there may be more.
