Blow, Gabriel, Blow

Blow, Gabriel, Blow

Ethel Merman

Blow Gabriel blow!
Go on and blow, Gabriel, blow!
I've been a sinner, I've been a scamp,
But now I'm willin' to trim my lamp1
So blow, Gabriel, blow!

I was low, Gabriel, low!
Mighty low, Gabriel, low!
But now, since I have seen the light,
I'm good by day and I'm good by night!
So blow, Gabriel, blow!

Once I was cited for hell,
Once I was headed foe hell,
But when I got to Satan's door,
I heard you blowin' on your horn once more,
so I said, "Satan, farewell!".

And now I'm all ready to fly,
Yes, to fly higher and higher and higher!
'Cause I've gone through that brimstone and fire;
And I've purged my soul and my heart too,
So climb up to the mountain top;

So start to blow, Gabriel, blow!
Go on and blow, Gabriel, blow!
I want to join your happy band
And play all day in the promised land,
So blow, Gabriel, blow!

And now I'm all ready to fly,
Yes, to fly higher and higher and higher!
'Cause I've gone through that brimstone and fire;
And I've purged my soul and my heart too,
So climb up to the mountain top;

So start to blow, Gabriel, blow!
Go on and blow, Gabriel, blow!
I want to join your happy band
And play all day in the promised land,
So blow, Gabriel, blow!
