To the tune of: "I've Been Working On The Railroad"
 
I've been workin for salvation
all the live-long day.
I've been earning my salvation
for my sins I have to pay.
Can't believe that Jesus' shed blood
is enough for me.
So I've been workin for salvation
so I'll in heaven be.
 
Gabriel won't you blow,
Gabriel won't you blow,
Gabriel won't you blow your horn,
Gabriel won't you blow,
Gabriel won't you blow,
I'm ready tho I'm not reborn.
 
Someone's in the church house a'preachin,
saying if to heaven we go, we go.
All our righteous deeds won't save us,
Jesus' blood must make us whole.
 
I hear that thief, ole satan lyin so,
he says I don't have to go.
He says worship God at home --
forget church and make it on your own.
