LYRICS

Listen, all you sinners!
If you want to get to Heaven, Heaven
Better get down on your knees and pray!
All you gambling skinners
Better quit saying ‘Seven Eleven’!
Get yourself prepared for the Judgment Day!

‘Cause I’ve done had a vision
Seen them gates a closing, closing
And I seen you sinners all outside
Your better make your decision
Pray that you’ll be chosen, chosen
It’ll be too late
When you’re done laid down and died!

Open up them pearly gates!
Open up them pearly gates!
Open up them pearly gates for me!
Hallelujah, ‘lujah!

When you hear that trumpet blast
I’ll be coming home at last
Open up them pearly gates for me!

Well, go out to that chicken roost!
Ask yourself an honest question
And the Lord will know it if you lie!
You better turn all them chickens loose
Or you’ll die from indigestion
When you eat that stolen chicken, fried!

Now, take that keg of gin!
Dump it every bit right in the river
Else you’ve 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

Open up them pearly gates!
Open up them pearly gates!
Open up them pearly gates for me!
Hallelujah, ‘lujah!

When you hear that trumpet blast
I’ll be coming home at last
Open up them pearly gates for me!
