Help! Does anyone know the name of the song (and the artist)played at the end of the last episode of the 1st season?

The opening lines of the song-- "Step by step, all the happy saints go marching in. And if a saint step out of line, they have to start again. 'Cause Jacob's golden ladder gets slippery at the top and many a happy go lucky saint has made that long, long drop."

Thanks

From the LP "Let The Rough Side Drag"

Step By Step
Step by step
All the happy Saints go marching in
And if one of those Saints step out of line
He'll have to start again
Cause Jacob's golden ladder
Get's slippery at the top
And many a happy-go-lucky saint
Has made that long long drop

If I'm late don't wait
Go on without me
I may tarry awhile
Cause I need to know
Before I go
How come the Devil smiles

If I'm late don't wait
Go on without me
I may tarry awhile
Cause I need to know
Before I go
How come the Devil smiles

Free from care
Free from sin
The Saints are trooping in
The children play all around the throne
Innocent of sin
A trillion voices sing the name
The mortals may not know
And Heaven's walls are too high to hear
The trouble down below

If I'm late don't wait
Go on without me
I may tarry awhile
Cause I need to know
Before I go
How come the Devil smiles
I need to know
Before I go
How come the Devil smiles
I need to know
Before I go
How come the Devil smiles
