Two of them were lily white babes, clothed all in green-o,
Three of them were drivers
Four gospel preachers
Five ferrymen under the bush
Six, the six pallbearers
Seven, seven stars under the sky
Eight gabriel angels
Nine the bright eyed shiners
Ten the ten commandments
Eleven is the eleven that went straight to heaven
Twelve, twelve apostles
