Revelation Lyrics - Waylon Jennings
Review The Song (4)
Somewhere in VietNam a 19-year-old soldier walked out of a barroom
And he said I must be seeing things that bourbon hit me like a baseball bat
In Bellfast Ireland a little lady dropped her shovel in her garden
She raced across the yard and ask her neighbor Mrs Clancy what was that
In Memphis Tennessee a teacher raised the window closest the river
And the children in her classroom swore they'd heard a choir singing down the street
In Washington DC a private secretary's lips began to quiver
And the President just put aside his papers and rose quickly to his feet
I lay in a cheap motel in the arms of someone else's woman
When a loud explosion rocked the room and turned the morning into night
I jumped out of bed and ran into the street with hardly any clothes on
As the sky lit up my heart stood still and I could feel my face was turnin' white
All at once the clouds rolled back and there stood Jesus Christ in all his glory
And I realized the saddest eyes I'd ever seen were lookin' straight at me
I guess I was awakened by the penetrating sounds of my own screamin'
And it didn't take me long to stumble out of bed and fall down on my knees
As tears rolled down my face I cried dear God I'm thankful I was only dreamin'
And if I never go to hell Lord it'll be because you scared it out of me

unbelieveable song...Revelation | Reviewer: Gary Walter | 5/29/12
I heard this song on cirrus radio "The Willie Nelson channel" and I actually stopped the car to hear it. I then wrote the name and artist down and now I play it constantly and I have sent it on to at least 100 people that have never heard of it.
When armegedon does happen, it will be just like the words in this song says. God Bless you Waylon Jennings.
Most memorable song - no one ever heard | Reviewer: BeyondMom | 12/10/11
I have had this song in my mind for nearly 40 years. I have never been able to forget it. I, too have wanted to buy it all of this time. I am hoping that I can buy it on iTunes. Either way, I wish it got more play time on country stations.
I want to buy this song! | Reviewer: Brent | 12/8/07
My dad has been wanting this song for years but the only place he seems to find it is in a box set that cost quite a bit of money. Is there anywhere else I can buy this song or the cd that it is on? Thanks.
