Lord, I Wish I Could See-Rev. Gary Davis
Key of C, standard tuning

It was a time when I went blind, it was a time when I went blind
Was the darkest day that I ever saw, was the time when I went blind

Lord, I cried the whole night long, Lord I cried the whole night long
Cryin’ “Oh, Lord won’t ya tell me how long am I to be blind always?”

Lord I wished I could see again, I wished I could see again
If I could see how happy I would be, I wished I could see again

Lord there nobody knows like me, that the trouble I do see
I’m away in the dark got ta feel my way, Lord there nobody cares for me

Lord it’s hard I have to be blind, Lord it’s hard I have to be blind
I’m away in the dark and I have to be led, Lord it’s hard I have to be blind

Ah there’s nobody knows like me, Lord there nobody knows like me
Since I lost my sight I lost my friends, now there’s nobody’s a friend to me

My friends turned they back on me, my friend turned their back on me
‘Cos I'm away in the dark and I cannot see, yeh they turned their back on me

Lord there nobody cares for me, nah there nobody cares for me
‘Cos I'm away in the dark and I cannot see, now there nobody cares for me

Lord my way is seem so hard, Lord I’m blind I cannot see
Said I’m away in the dark got ta feel my way, Lord my way it seem so hard

It was the time when I went blind, it was the time when I went blind
Was a dreadful day that I ever see, was the time when I went blind

Lord there nobody knows like me, at the trouble I do see
(spoken)
Y’all oughta realize that ya got the good sight, you ought ta know that it’s a good thing to have
You can see! It’s the truth, you can see, I mean you can see, you can see everything coming to you!

It was the time when I went blind
