American Ballads and Folk Songs
HEALIN' WATERS
In a certain country Baptist church a little old woman "from slavery times" would, when she got happy in the Lord, go about through the congregation shaking hands and singing "Healin' Waters." The song was recorded by a student at Prairie View Normal in Texas.
Healin' waters done move, Healin' waters done move,
What's de matter now?
Healin' waters done move, Healin' waters done move,
Come to Jesus!
Healin' waters done move, Healin' waters done move,
Soul gittin' happy now,
Healin' waters done move, Healin' waters done move,
Hallelujah!
Healin' waters done move, Healin' waters done move.
[581]
