Reel 304 #9
Collected by W.C. Anderson For Mary C. Parler Transcribed by Linda Humphrey
Sung by W.C. Anderson Fayetteville, Ark. Jan. 5, 1961
This Old World Can Never Hold Me
When the stars they fall from Heaven,
And the moon turns into blood,
When this earth and Heavens are shaken,
And the Savior comes from above.
This old world can never hold me,
In a moment I'll be gone,
I have made my conscration
And I have my wedding garment on.
Soon the Savior will be calling,
Come up higher to your home,
For your work on earth is over,
And you have your wedding garment on.
Sinner listen to this warning,
While you have time to pray,
For your doom is surely coming,
At that awful judgement day.
Mrs. E.N. Campbell, Anderson’s informant, got this song from Mrs. Maudie Jones about 1940.
