about

I learnt this from Brian Peters and Jeff Davis's album 'Sharp's Appalachian Harvest'. It was collected in the Appalachian mountains by British collectors Cecil Sharp and Maud Karpeles in August 1917 and can be found in the book 'Dear Companion'. It's also known as 'Gospel Plow'.

lyrics

One of these days about four o'clock
This old world's gonna reel and rock
Keep your hand, keep your hand to the plough, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Keep your hand, keep your hand to the plough, hold on

One of these days but I don't know when
This old world, she's going to end
Keep your hand...

Go away Satan, let me be
You fooled my brother but you can't fool me
Keep your hand...

Satan wears a sinful shoe
If you're not careful he'll put it on you
Keep your hand...

Some of these mornings at the rising sun
God's gonna stop your lying tongue
Keep your hand...

Ain't been to Heaven but I've been told
That the streets are pearl and the gates are gold
Keep your hand...

When I get to Heaven I'm gonna sit down
Wear a white robe and a starry crown
Keep your hand...

I'm going to Heaven and I ain't gonna stop
Ain't gonna be no stumbling block
Keep your hand...
