I'm troubled, I'm troubled, I'm troubled in mind; And if Jesus don't help me, I surely will die.

"Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray."
Chorus
I couldn't hear nobody pray,
Oh, I couldn't hear nobody pray,
Oh, way down yonder by myself,                                j
And I couldn't hear nobody pray.
1. In the valley�Couldn't hear nobody pray; On-a my knees�Couldn't hear nobody pray; So lonesome�Couldn't hear nobody pray; With my burden�Couldn't hear nobody pray.
