American Ballads and Folk Songs
When you hear dat Ise a-dyin', I don' want nobody to mo'n. All I want my frien's to do Is give dat bell a tone.
Chorus:
Well, well, well, tone de bell easy, Well, well, well, tone de bell easy, Well, well, well, tone de bell easy, Jesus gonna make up my dyin' bed.
Mary was a-grievin'j Martha said, "He isn' los'" But late dat Friday evenin' He was hangin' to de cross.
Well, well, well, he was hangin' in mis'ry, Well, well, well, he was hangin' in mis'ry, Well, well, well, he was hangin' in mis'ry, Jesus gonna make up my dyin' bed.
Jesus said to his disciples,
CCI can see you are afraid;
But if you keep my commandments,
I'm gonna make up yo' dyin' bed."
Well, well, well, he's my dyin'-bed maker, Well, well, well, he's my dyin'-bed maker, Well, well, well, he's my dyin'-bed maker, Jesus gonna make up my dyin' bed.
When you see me dyin', I don't want you to make no alarms; For I can see King Jesus comin' To fol' my dyin' arms.
[ 606 ]
