Father, Don't You Want to Be in that Number

Cat. #1078 (MFH #269) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on May 12, 1970

VERSE 1
Father don't you want to be in that number
Father don't you want to be in that number
Father don't you want to be in that number
Comin' down, comin' down, from God

CHORUS:
I want'a be in that number
Where no man can number
Want'a be in that number
Where no man can number
Want'a be in that number
Where no man can number
Comin' down, comin' down, from God

(Same as above for Mother.)
