​Rich Man's Spiritual

This song is by Gordon Lightfoot and appears on the album Lightfoot! (1966).

Gonna buy me a long white robe
Yes, and Lord, to help me home
I'm gonna buy me a long white robe
Yes, and 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, and Lord, to walk me home
I'm gonna buy me two golden slippers
Yes, and 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, and Lord, to fly me home
I'm gonna buy me two wings of silver
Yes, and Lord, to fly me hom and 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, and Lord, to help me home
I'm gonna buy me a poor man's trouble
Yes, and 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 smiling angel
Yes, and Lord, to lead me home
I'm gonna get me a smiling angel
Yes, and 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 smiling angel to lead me home
I'm gonna get me a smiling angel to lead me home
