Gonna but me a long white robe
Yes Lord to help me home
I'm gonna buy me a long white robe
Yes Lord to get me home
And when I get my heavenly gown
And I lay my burden down
I'm gonna get me a long white robe 
To get me home 

I'm gonna buy me two golden slippers
Yes Lord to walk me home
I'm gonna buy me two golden slippers
Yes Lord to walk me home
And when I get my slippers of gold
Then the Lord will have my soul
I'm gonna get me two golden slippers 
To get me home 

I'm gonna buy me two wings of silver
Yes Lord to fly me home
I'm gonna buy me two wings of silver
Yes Lord to fly me home
And when I get my silvery wings
Then an angel choir will sing
I'm gonna get me two wings of silver 
To get me home 

I'm gonna buy me a poor man's trouble
Yes Lord to help me home
I'm gonna buy me a poor man's trouble
Yes Lord to help me home
And when I get my trouble and woe
Then homeward I will go
I'm gonna get a little trouble 
And woe to get me home 

I'm gonna find me a smilin' angel
Yes Lord to lead me home
I'm gonna get me a smilin' angel
Yes Lord to lead me home
And when he takes me by the hand
I know the Lord will understand
I'm gonna get me a smilin' angel to lead me home
I'm gonna get me a smilin' angel to lead me home
