Big Sugar Joe Louis / Judgement Day Lyrics

Last updated: 12/18/2013 04:59:57 AM

(G. Johnson)

Kiss my face and slap me on my hands
And if I tumble, please catch me where I land
And I won't look back at where I fall
And if I cry out, who's gonna hear me call?
Hey Joe...

I tell ya, some folks find it hard to get along these days
If this wasn't my home, I don't believe I would stay
I thought I heard somebody ring my bell
I used to know, but now it's hard to tell
Hey Joe...

When I'm gone, who's gonna carry my name?
When I'm gone, lordy, who's gonna carry my name?
Ah, when I'm gone, lordy, who's gonna carry my name?
I feel like an old man playing a young man's game
Hey Joe...

Lord, look at the people
Mmmm, look at the people
Lord, look at the people,
Standing at the judgement, they got to be tried
Standing at the judgement, they got to be tried

I've always loved this tune and it's been a growing favorite of mine over the last few years.. sure enough, it has it's roots in a Skip James tune, "Look at the people standing at the judgement" A blues tune recorded back in '68.
