Laz'rus

John McCutcheon
Language: English



Poor ol' Laz'rus, shake your bones
You come from the world of water and stone,
Locked in the belly of the earth all alone..
Poor Ol' Laz'rus shake your bones

Poor ol' Laz'rus, ain't it a sight
In that world of endless night
Your dreams are filled this air and light
Poor ol' Laz'rus ain't it a sight?

Poor ol' Laz'rus you know it's true
This world was made by men like you
So this earth is gonna claim her due
Poor ol' Laz'rus you know it's true..

Poor Ol' Laz'rus, that third day
When they raised your body from the clay
Turned the hand of death away
Poor ol' Laz'rus on that great day..

Poor ol' Laz'rus the ages gonna roll
Squeeze your body into coal
Break your back but not your soul
Poor ol' Laz'rus the ages gonna roll

Poor Ol' Laz'rus, shake your bones
You come from the world of water and stone
Nine men a-walkin' that road back home..
Poor ol' Laz'rus – shake your bones
