Denomination Blues, Part 1-Washington Phillips
Self-accompanied on Phonoharp and Celestaphone

I want to tell you the natural fact
Every man don't understand the bible alike
REFRAIN: But that's all, now, I tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, I tell you that's all

Well, the denominations has no right to fight
They ought to just treat each other right
REFRAIN: And that's all, I'll tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, I'll tell you that's all

The Primitive Baptists, they believe
You can't get to Heaven unless'n you wash your feet
REFRAIN: But that's all, now, I tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, I'll tell you that's all

The onliest Primitive that has any part
Is the one that got the washing with the pure in heart
REFRAIN: And that's all, I tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, now, I'll tell you that's all

Now, the Missionary Baptists, they believe
Go under the water, and not to wash his feet
REFRAIN: And that's all, I tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, now, I tell you that's all

Now, the A.M.E. Methodists, they believe
Sprinkle their head, to not to wash their feet
REFRAIN: And that's all, now, I'll tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, now, I tell you that's all

Now the A.M.E. Methodists, they believe
Sprinkle the head, and not to wash their feet
REFRAIN: And that's all, I tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, now, I tell you that's all

Now the African Methodists, they believe the same
'Cause they know denominations ain't a thing but a name
REFRAIN: And that's all, now, I tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, now, I tell you that's all

Now the Holiness People, when they came in
They said, "Boys, we think you'll make it by livin' above sin."
REFRAIN: But that's all, I tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, now, I'll tell you that's all

Now, the Church of God had it in their mind
That they can get to Heaven without the sacrament wine
REFRAIN: But that's all, now, I'll tell you that's all
But you better have Jesus, now, I'll tell you that's all
