Lightnin' Hopkins – It's A Sin To Be Rich, It's A Low-Down… lyrics

You know that it's a sin to be rich
But it's a low down shame to be poor
It is a sin to be rich
You know that it's a low down shame to be poor
You know a rich man ain't got a chance to go to heaven
And a poor man got a hard way to go
You know I don't wanna be rich
I just wanna stay between rich and poor
No I don't wanna be rich
I just wanna live between rich and poor
Yes when I die you know I wanna go to heaven
That's when Po' Lightnin' will have a chance to go
Gabriel gonna be the next man to blow that trumpet
I wants to be there when he blow (blow, Gabriel)
Whoa he gonna be the next man blow that trumpet
I wants to be there when po' Gabriel blow
Whoa that's when the world be off(?) with the people
And I can leay there and rest for sure
Everybody!
