Lyrics
Didn't old pharaoh get lost, get lost, get lost
Didn't old pharaoh 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 he can't get out,
Tryin' to cross the Red Sea

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
[x2]

Didn't old pharaoh get lost, yes, tryin' to cross the Red Sea.

I went down in the valley to say a little 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
I cried "Lord have mercy, if You please"

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
[x2]

Didn't old pharaoh get lost, get lost, get lost
Didn't old pharaoh get lost, yes, tryin' to cross the Red Sea.
