I've Been Converted (traditional)

I know I've been converted
Do you?
I know I've been converted
Do you?

You've got a noose
And you'll make me change
I'm not afraid to call my savior's name
And I know why
I've been converted

When I was a sinner
I didn't know how to pray
My words didn't seem to fill
Didn't know the words I say
Then a voice came from Heaven
Said I will show you the way

I know I've been converted
Do you?
I know I've been converted
Do you?

My mother
She taught me how to pray
My mother
She taught me how to pray
And I go pray my soul away
Ain't gonna be nobody's fault but mine

I know I've been converted
I know I've been converted
Do you?

I know I've been converted
I know I've been converted
Do you?

I took my feet off my red clay
Left me standing right on my way

I've been converted
I know I've been converted
I know I've been converted
Do you?




Hard Time Killing Floor Blues (Skip James)

Hard time here and everywhere you go
Times is harder than ever been before

And the people are driftin' from door to door
Can't find no heaven, I don't care where they go

Hear me tell you people, just before I go
These hard times will kill you just dry long so

Well, you hear me singin' my lonesome song
These hard times can last us so very long

If I ever get off this killin' floor
I'll never get down this low no more
No-no, no-no, I'll never get down this low no more

And you say you had money, you better be sure
'Cause these hard times will drive you from door to door

Sing this song and I ain't gonna sing no more
Sing this song and I ain't gonna sing no more
These hard times will drive you from door to door




Where Do I Go Now

For a hundred miles
A thousand more I'll go
I wonder a hundred miles
Got a thousand more to go
I can't quit my walking
It's about the only thing I know

Got up this morning
Bones are aching and tired
Got up this morning
My bones are aching and tired
A man just looked at me
He looked up and smiled

Where do I go now?
Where do I go now?
Where do I go now?
Where do I go now?

Carry me somebody
Cause I don't think I can go myself
Carry me, somebody
Cause I don't think I can go myself
I'll fall down by the wayside
Covered in emptiness

Tell my family
I've been dead and gone
Tell my family
I been dead and gone
Ain't that the way of the pilgrim
He's always moving on

Where do I go now?
Where do I go now?
Where do I go now?
Where do I go now?




Love Me Baby Blues (Joe Callicott)

Drive down baby
Like showers of rain
Can't you hear my fair girl
Call my name
Can't you hear my fair girl call my name?
She calls so loud, it's so plain

I walked on down to the station
Tears falling down
I got some news this morning
My baby left town
I got some bad news
My baby left town

She took my money
She got my clothes
Rolling down the road
But I wonder why you go
I know your going down the road
But I wonder why you go
Come on back, won't you love me again

Well my rooster crows
Down in France
Why won't the other guy
Lend me another chance?
Why won't that guy lend me a chance?

Treat me dirty
You treat me mean
I know you've done me clean
Why won't you come back home and
Love me again?
Come back home, why won't you love me again?




Lead Me On

I've been looking for a home
I've been looking for a home
But i can't find one
Looking for a home but i can't find one

Lead me on
Lead me on
Lead me on

I've been drifting here and there
I need a guide to show my way
I've been drifting here and there
But i need a guide to show my way
I've been drifting here and there
I need a guide to show my way

Lead me on
Lead me on
Better lead me on

One of these nights sing you a song
Make you weep and moan
One of these nights I'll sing you a song
Make you weep and moan

Lord lord lord
Lead me on

If my heart don't stop aching
I won't live to see the sun
If my heart don't stop aching
I won't live to see the sun

Lead me on
Lead me on
Lead me on

I've got a picture in my mind
Of my home so far away
I've got me a picture
Of my home so far away

Carry my burden down to the anvil
Over the mountain and down to the sea
Take my burden over the mountain
down to the sea
Carry it back over the mountain down to the sea

Still looking for a home
I've been looking for a home
Yeah I've been looking for a home

Lead me on
Lead me on
Lead me on....




Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed (traditional)

I said a prayer to Jesus Christ instead of weeping
But I meant to cry
In time I receive a rose in my hand
Left a sore on my eye
Left a sore on my eye
Singing I-I-I bring the boy up easy
I-I-I, I can't bring a boy up easy
Jesus is gonna make up my dying bed

Ladies don't cry
I'm weeping saying
He ain't bored
I know them heathens
Left him hanging on a cross
Hanging on a cross

Finally he did
Hear the Lord weep and moan
Say eat this apple
Carry my body home
Carry my body home
Lord, Lord, Lord
I done gone up
Bring him home, bring him home

I was laying there
Dead and buried
Someone said that I was lost
When I got down
I had to find me and I did cross
I had to find me and I did cross
I had to find me and I did cross

I,I,I I done gone over
I done gone
I,I,I, I done gone
Gonna make up my dying bed
Jesus make up my dying bed
Jesus make up my dying bed




Leavin' Blues (Herman Johnson)

I wanted to leave it ya see
But I stays way too long
Wanted to leave it ya see
But stays way too long
Well the girl that I'm loving
Took that westbound train and go

Well the world is so foggy
And I can't see where I go
And the world is so foggy
I can't see where I go
Gonna take me so long to make it
I hafta drive so slow

Gonna take my breakfast here
Eat my supper in Mexico
I'll take my breakfast here
Eat my supper in Mexico
Say goodbye
I won't see you no more
Say goodbye
I won't see you no more

I wanted to leave you see
But I stays way too long
I wanted to leave you see
But I stays way too long.

Say goodbye
Won't see ya no more




Marking Stone Blues

Walking around at midnight
Looking for my marking stone
Walking around at midnight
Looking for my marking stone
I was born an honest way
I was born an honest way
I sure don't mind

One foot go the right way
Other one won't be
One foot go the right way
The other won't be
I feel like I'm itching
I feel like I'm itching
I'm gonna jump down in my grave

Well I am an old man
I've got nothing more to say
Well I am an old man
I've got nothing more to say
I got one foot in the bone yard
And the other one I pray

I ride me a train
Take me to higher ground
I'm gonna ride me a train
Take me to higher ground
I wondered on back home
I wondered on back home
I wondered but it keeps bringing me down




The Black Crow Keeps Flying


Flying through the sky
And the wind is howling
Won't you tell me why

See the black crow fly
Flying through the sky
And the wind is howling
Won't you tell me why
Tell me why

Invent a train
well it left to soon
And I'm laughing at the moon

Well I invent a train,
But it left to soon
Now I'm standing in the doorway
And I'm laughing at the moon

Fly so high
And I fall so low
I might loose my mind
Worried no more

Fly so high
Fall so low
Loose my mind
Worried no more

Loose my mind, worried no more
The black crow fly

I know somebody
Put a thing on me
And you know I can't see

Well I know somebody
Put a thing on me
Got my eyes wide open
But Lord I can't see

Got my eyes wide open
But Lord I can't see

The black crow keeps flying...




I'd Be A Rich Man

Spend my time trying to get along
Spend my time trying to get along
If I had a dollar for every time I cried
I'd be a rich man
Come the day I died
I'd be a rich man
Come the day I died

Ain't gonna grow old
Before his time
Won't grow old before his time
If there was an answer that I could find
I'd satisfy my soul
And ease my mind
Satisfy my soul
And ease my mind

Well one more trouble
One more misery
One more trouble
And one more misery
Take my hand I know
And lead me on
Get me ready
Cause I'm gonna come back home
Get me ready
Cause I'm gonna come back home



If I knew when I was a child
If I only knew when I was a child
If I ever find what I'm looking for
I'd close my eyes
And weep no more
I'd close my eyes
And weep no more




Someone To Save Me

Well I ain't got nothing
For all this misery
I ain't got nothing
For all this misery
Well I ain't got nothing
For all this misery
If it ain't the devil
The Lord'll set me free

Sure can tell you
I Seen what I seen
Sure can tell you
I seen what I seen
I can tell you
I see what I seen
Would make a good man cripple
It'll make a good man mean

Well I've got trouble
I'm gonna throw it down and go
I've got trouble
I'm gonna throw it down and go
Lord I've got trouble
And I'm gonna throw it down and go
I try to do some praying
The Lord is working much too slow

Staying out here
That's the last thing on my mind
Staying out here
That's the last thing on my mind
I lost my mind
And I done ran out of time

Well I need me a rope
I need shackles on my feet
I need a rope around my neck
I need shackles on my feet
I need a rope
I'm gonna need shackles on my feet
I need somebody
I need somebody near me
I need someone to save my soul's defeat
I need someone to save my soul's defeat




Motherless Children (traditional)

The motherless children
Have a hard time when mother is dead
The motherless children
Have a hard time when mother's dead
They don't have anywhere to go
Walking around from door to door
Motherless children have a hard time
With mother dead

Well father says that he can do
After mother gone away
Father says that he can do
After mother gone away
Father don't do so many things
Those motherless children have a hard time
After mother gone
Motherless children
Don't know where to go

Mother told a child
Someday I'll meet you
Some day when we are dead
Mother told a child
I'll meet after we are dead
She told a child
Someday I'll meet you
I can't desert you
Motherless children have a hard time
After mother has gone

Motherless children
Have a hard time when she's gone
Motherless children
Have a hard time when she's gone
They don't have anywhere to go
The wander form door to door
Motherless children
Have a hard time




Fare Thee Well (traditional)

They told me on the phone
They don't have no man at all
Fare thee well
Bade Fare thee well
They told me on the phone
They don't have no man
They no more man
And a two-ton truck at home

Come tell me to my face
You got another guy at my place
Fare thee well
Come on tell me to my face
Another guy standing in place
Goodbye baby I'm going away
Goodbye Baby I'm going away

Get you knife
Don't' forget your gun
Fare thee well
Get your knife
Nighttime but I feel like lying round
Not so tired, but I feel like laying round
Fare thee well

What are you gonna do
When your trouble gets like mine
Fare thee well
What are you gonna do
When your trouble gets like mine
Get a big spade
And dig down in your mind
Get a big spade
And dig down in your mind
Fare thee well

Goodbye baby I'm leaving
Ain't coming back again
Fare thee well
I'm leaving
It's your last chance
To shake it up with me
It's your last chance
To shake it up with me
