Lyrics

REFRAIN Didn't old pharoah get lost, get lost, get lost Didn't old pharoah get lost, yes, Tryin' to cross the Red Sea.

Ol' Satan wears an old iron shoe Tryin' to cross the Red Sea, If you don't mind he’ll slip it on you Tryin' to cross the Red Sea. I wonder what the Devil keeps grumblin' about, Tryin' to cross the Red Sea, He's down in Hell and can't get out, Tryin' to cross the Red Sea

CHORUS Creep along, Moses, Moses creep along, Creep along Moses, I thank God. Creep along, Moses, Moses creep along, Creep along Moses, I’m going home

REFRAIN

I went down in the valley an' I didn't go to stay, Tryin' to cross the Red Sea, My soul got happy an' I stayed all day, Tryin' to cross the Red Sea.

I went down in the valley to offer up prayer, Tryin' to cross the Red Sea, When I got there, ol' Satan was there, Tryin' to cross the Red Sea. And I fell down upon my knees Tryin' to cross the Red Sea. Cried ‘Lord have mercy, if you please’

CHORUS REFRAIN
