OPEN UP THEM PEARLY GATES Carson Robison, Frank Luther as rec by Sam Browne w Ambrose and His Orch in 1932 Open up dem Pearly Gates Open up dem pearly gates! Open up dem pearly gates! Open up dem pearly gates for me! Hallelujah, lujah! (Hallelujah!) When I hear that trumpet blast I'll be coming home at last Open up dem pearly gates for me! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Oh my brethren! Listen to the words of wisdom that flow from this here fountain of truth Effervescence and insusceptibility Listen all you sinners If you wanna get to heaven, heaven Better get down on your knees and pray Oh all you gambling sinners Better quit saying seven 'leven Get yourself prepared for Judgement Day Hallelujah! Lordy! Hear my prayer! 'Cause I have had a vision I seen dem gates are closing, closing And I seen you sinners all outside Yo'd better make your decision And pray that you'll be chosen, chosen It'll be too late then when you done lay down and die Hallelujah! Open up dem gates! Open up dem pearly gates! Open up dem pearly gates! Open up dem pearly gates for me! Hallelujah, lujah! When I hear that trumpet blast I'll be coming home at last Open up dem pearly gates for me! Oh walk to your chicken roost And ask yourself an honest question And the Lord will know it if you lie Yo'd better turn all dem chickens loose Or you'll die from indigestion When you eat that stolen chicken pie Hallelujah! Lordy! Hear my prayer! Oh take that jug o' gin Dump it every bit righ' in the river Don't you let old Satan stay your hand And if you fill it up again It'll eat a hole right in your liver And the gate won't open when you reach that Promised Land Hallelujah! Lordy! Hear my prayer! Open up dem pearly gates! Open up dem pearly gates! Open up dem pearly gates for me! Hallelujah, lujah! When you hear that trumpet blast I'll be coming home at last Open up dem pearly gates for me! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Open up dem pearly gates for me! Hallelujah! Open up dem gates!
