"'Oh, Dem Golden Slippers,' was written in 1879 as a minstrel song by James A. Bland, but it has since become a folk song and can be played on fiddle, too. These lyrics are closest to the original spelling…" –Nathan Wood

"…it is a favorite of the decidedly Philadelphia New Years tradition, The Mummer's Parade." –Gerald Bergen (on Mudcat)

A different version of this song was used in a commercial in the 1970's for the cereal "Golden Grahams". You may remember it! You can see it on YouTube here.
