"Two Wings"

       
  1. Oh, Lord I want two wings to cover my face,
Oh, Lord I want two wings to fly away,
Oh, Lord I want two wings to cover my face,
So the world can't do me no harm.
 
 
2.
I want two golden shoes to put on my feet,
I want two golden shoes to put on my feet,
I want two golden shoes to put on my feet,
So the world can't do me no harm.
 
  3. I want a golden harp to play by myself,
I want a golden harp to play by myself,
I want a golden harp to play by myself,

So the world can't do me no harm.
