GUEST,marie Lyr Req: Rock Island Line (from Leadbelly) (35) RE: Lyr Req: Rock Island Line (Leadbelly) 16 Sep 10

Missing lyrics I learned as a child were as follows-

these are the spoken -or hollered- words between the chorus

this is the order we sang them in.

ABC double XYZ
The cat's in the corner an it can't see me

God gave us the Rainbow Sign
No more water, it's fire nex time

Moses stood on the Red Sea shore
Partin' the waters with a 2x4

Jesus died to save our sin
Glory to God, we gonna see him agin

I may be right an I may be wrong
But you're gonna miss me when I'm gone

hope this helps. I think our Sunday Schoolteacher may have added some extra words - or maybe they just got left of the recordings.
