AnneMC Songs about Angels (62* d) RE: Songs about Angels 20 Aug 04

Norman and Nancy Blake have a great song called "Angel Gabriel" on their CD "The Hobo's Last Ride." And if anyone knows the missing word below, please post it !

Angel Gabriel
Norman Blake

Oh my soul, my soul is a'goin' for to rest,
In the arms of the Angel Gabriel
And I'll climb on a hill and I'll look through the mist
And I'll cross over Jordan to the Lamb
And I'll sit me down in the old armchair,
And brothers, I will never tire,
And old Satan may sneeze, But I will take my ease,
And I'll warm myself at the holy fire

I will shout, I will dance, and I'll wake up early in the morn
And I will arise as I rub my sleepy eyes,
When old Gabriel's blowing on the horn x2

Oh my soul, my soul is a 'goin' for to rest
Oh a rest as sure as I am born
And I'll look like a blackbird sitting on a nest
When old Gabriel is blowin' on the horn
And I'll leave my clothes set upon the shore
For I'll have heavenly garments to wear
And I'll have plenty of shoes and I'll never get the blues
And the angels will come and curl my hair                                

Oh I shan't weep when I'm a 'goin' to leave
So I'll pack up my trunk and I'll go
And my brother old ___   (?) don't you ever grieve
For I'm going up to glory very slow.

And I'll eat my meals there three times a day
You can bet your life I won't be late
And I'll have lots of fun when you would rather come
For I'm going to take tickets at the gate
