Move This Rope - J.B. Lenoir - 1966
Remove this rope from 'round my neck
It is almost 'bout to choke me to death
Remove this rope from 'round my neck
It is almost 'bout to choke me to death
Oh Lord, You know
You know I need me some rest

I have walked and I walked
'Til my feet is wet with sweat and full of soil
I have walked and I walked
'Til my feet is wet with sweat and full of soil
On Earth I haven't found no rest
And, you know, I'm a-still walking yet

I watch the sun rise in the morning east
I talks to my Father, He talks back at me
I watch the sun rise in the morning east
I talks to my Father, He talks back at me
He said: "Don't worry, J.B
I will rise up a nation will set you free"

I broke down and cried
I know now someone had heard my prayer
I broke down and cried
I know now someone had heard my prayer
He said: "Dry them eyes
'Cause your God, now, is by your side"
