From Jimmie Johnson’s recording:

Open the gate and walk on through
Find an old dog but he won’t bite you

Why in the world to the people all know
I take sugar in my coffee-o

Additional lyrics from Tom, Brad, and Alice’s recording of Open the Gate:

Open up the gate and open it wide
Walk on through to the other side
