Lyr Req: Live On Down the Line (Carter Family)

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

Hi all Mudcaters (first post here for me),

I came across this song, sung by A.P and Sara Carter (without Maybelle) on their 50's Acme Sessions.
The title says "Live on Down the Line", and the lead is sung by A.P. I have been able to figure some lyrics:

   I'se gonna live on down the line
   I'se gonna live on down the line
   I'se gonna live on down the line
   Where the *** has no [end] (not sure)

Some say give me silver
And some say give me gold
But I say give me Jesus
He's precious to my soul

And there was poor old Daniel
Was cast in the lion den
And when he prayed to heaven
King Jesus was his friend

Now come on you good people
And listen to my plea
Put your trust in Jesus
And he will set you free

With one or two more verses. I can't figure out the last line of the chorus, and I'd really appreciate if someone gets it.

Also, I haven't been able to find this song or a close one anywhere else (apart from a few floating lyrics, like the "some say give me silver" thing). If any of you has any info on where does it come from, and if there are other recordings of it, it'd be appreciated also.

Cheers,

Robin

Oh, thanks a lot for that. I was really stuck with this line.

This song really seems isolated (by which I mean, I never heard it anywhere else).

Sorry for the double post. Anyway, to anyone looking for them, here are the complete lyrics as I hear them:

LIVE ON DOWN THE LINE
(Carter Family)

   I'se gonna live on down the line
   I'se gonna live on down the line
   I'se gonna live on down the line
   Where the Sabbath has no end

Some say give me silver
And some say give me gold
But I say give me Jesus
He's precious to my soul

And there was poor old Daniel
Was cast in the lion den
And when he prayed to heaven
King Jesus was he's friend

And there the Hebrew children
Was cast on the fiery plain
Because they loved their saviour
And confessed his name

Now come on you good people
And listen to my plea
Put your trust in Jesus
And he will set you free

When Gabriel sounds his trumpet
Over land and sea
It sounds like many thunders
The end of time will be

Some say give me silver
And some say give me gold
But I say give me Jesus
He's precious to my soul

You can hear a small bit here:

There's not much, but you still can hear both the verse and the chorus

Blue Highway's version has different lyrics and they don't post their lyrics on this song along with their other songs (which is then difficult for listeners to figure them out. Anyone know why?

Here's what I could figure, but I trouble at the third and last line of Blue Mountain Band's version. Maybe someone else knows?

Live on Down the Line
Blue Highway Band
(from their Wondrous Love Album)
website: bluehighwayband.com

vs 1
Come on you good people
Gather 'round me here
See God's kingdom deep within    ??
Praise the Lord He come to set you free.

Chorus:
I'm a gonna live on down the line
Gonna live on down the line
I'm a gonna live on down the line
Where the Sabbath has no end.

Vs 2
Well there was bold Daniel
Went down in the lion's den
But when he prayed to Jesus
Jesus was his friend.

Chorus

vs 3
Some say give me silver
Some say give me gold
But I say "Give me the Holy Word
It's a blessing to my soul!"

Chorus

vs 4
Come on, you good people,
Tell me what you see?
Do ya see our Lord ascending
Calvary's on the tree    ??? not sure this last line

I'm a gonna live on down the line
Gonna live on down the line
I'm a gonna live on down the line
Where the Sabbath has no end!

This verse should be corrected:
    And there the Hebrew children
    Was cast on the fiery plain
    Because they loved their saviour
    And confessed his name

    To:
    And there the Hebrew children
    Was cast in the firey flames
    Because they loved their saviour
    And Confessed his name
