Uncle Billy’s Dream
I had a fight with old satan last night,
As I lay half awake;
Old satan came to my bedside,
And me began to shake.
He shaked me long, he shaked me strong,
He shaked me clear out of bed,
He grabbed me by the collar,
And he looked in the face,
And what do you think he said
He took me to the window
And says he look dar;
The moon shone quite bright,
And the hills and the mountains
Shone clear up to my sight;
Says all these things shall be yours,
If you shall be my general when you’re dead;
And I grabbed him by the collar.
And I looked him in the face,
And what do you think 1 said?
I was feeling quite chiily,
And I thought I would catch cold,
So I crept into my bed;
And through the night, I thought I saw
My good Lord his head,
Old satan then vanished through the floor,
And a light through the roof it shed,
And I threw the covers right over off head,
And the Lord to me He said:
