Morris Brothers - My Lord Will Come
« on: March 17, 2015, 04:29:33 AM »
So this is not exactly blues (as usual with my lyric help requests), but I hope it's close enough. My Lord Will Come by the wonderful Morris Brothers is a recording that was never re-released but someone who has the 78 kindly made it available here http://saggyrecordcabinet.blogspot.co.uk/
I got most of it, and I ask for help with a couple of places. I think it's a great recording, and I never heard this song done by anyone else so thank goodness they recorded it.
Thanks for the help!

Dear Jesus said he?d come for me
And when he comes he?ll welcome me
The pearly gates will open wide
I?ll enter in and then ???

My lord will come for me I know
And then with him I?ll gladly go
Come on dear friend and go with me
Forever with the lord to be

Dear master help me to be strong
To hold thee up in prayer and song
??? ??? ??? ??? sing
And to the promises we?ll cling

My lord will come for me I know?

The lord will help us everyday
To walk the straight and narrow way
Look unto him and trust his grace
And you and him shall have a place

My lord will come for me I know?

That's a nice track for sure. That deep minor works very well!

Sounds to me like:


1.4 I?ll enter in and then I'LL DIE

3.3 YOUR PRAISES I WILL EVER sing

Sounds to me like 1.4 is "I?ll enter THEN IN PARADISE"

I agree with Gumbo on 3.3

Hi Roi,
I just listened to the song and I think the 1.4 line is:
   I'll enter in and THERE ABIDE

In 3.3, I think he meant to sing

   THY PRAISES I WILL EVER SING

but he sang "THE" instead of "THY"

All best,
Johnm

You've got it, John.  Good ears.  I humbly withdraw my suggestion.

Yup, that's it. And then 3.4 would be "WILL cling" and not "WE'LL cling", I guess.

Thank you guys!
