PUSH DEM CLOUDS AWAY
 
div
 
If you want to git to Heaven on de nickel-plated road,
Just push dem clouds away;
Bring along all yer luggage and check it to de Lord,
When you push dem clouds away!
If de train am a-speeding an' you can't catch on,
When you push dem clouds away!
You're a coon dat's gone and wuss dan none,
When you push dem clouds away!

Chorus: Just push! Don't shove!
Just push dem clouds away!
Keep a pushin' an' a shovin' an' a pushin' an' a shovin',
'Til you push dem clouds away!

Oh, de chickens up there don't have to scratch,
When you push dem clouds away!
All green and yaller is dem water-millon patch,
When you push dem clouds away!
If the people am a yellin' for some pie and milk,
Just push dem clouds away!
De angels dere all dress in silk,
When push dem clouds away!

Chorus:

There'll be no boys a puffin' cigarettes,
When push dem clouds away!
They'll all have wings those mammy's little pets,
When push dem clouds away!
Old Gabriels horn will toot and roar,
When push dem clouds away!
There'll be no dudes around the stage door,
When push dem clouds away!

Chorus:
