Subject: ADD: Slippin' and Slidin' Up the Golden Street
I found "Slippin' and Slidin' Up the Golden Street" at http://weeniecampbell.com/wiki/index.php?title=Slippin'_And_Slidin'_Up_the_Golden_Street,_Take_2

Slippin' And Slidin' Up the Golden Street, Take 2-Julius Daniels w/Bubba Lee Torrence
Daniels, slide in Vestapol, Torrence, Vestapol

This isn't exactly the version Bob Coltman sings, but it's good.


SLIPPIN' AND SLIDIN' UP THE GOLDEN STREET

(Guitar starts line) horses' feet?
Don't you hear them horses' feet?
Don't you hear them horses' feet
Just slippin' and slidin' up the golden stream?

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Ah, takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him

Goin' into Heaven gonna take up my stand
Goin' into Heaven gon' take up my stand
Goin' into Heaven, gon' take up my stand
I'm gonna challenge old Satan like a natch'l man

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him

Mother and Father 'member well
Mother and Father 'member well
Mother and Father 'member well
Lord, your daughter Lizabeth a-ringin' in Hell

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him

Mind me, sister, how you walk on the cross
Mind me, sister, how you walk on the cross
Mind me, sister, how you walk on the cross
Says, your right feet slip and your soul get lost

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him

Wonder what old Satan's grumblin' 'bout
Wonder what old Satan's grumblin' 'bout
Wonder what old Satan's grumblin' 'bout
Says, he's lock up in the Hell and he can't get out

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him

Mother and Father 'member well
Mother and Father 'member well
Mother and Father 'member well
Says, your daughter Lizabeth a-ringin' in Hell

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him

Eve and Adam was the first
Eve and Adam was the first
Eve and Adam was the first
Lord, God created from the dust

REFRAIN: Takin' my Lord away, 'way, oh Lord, away
Takin' my Lord away, gon' tell 'em where to find him
