Ballads and Songs
4. Was you there when they crucified our Lord ? Was you there when they crucified our Lord ?
Oh, how them troubles would have made me a-trimble To have been there when they crucified our Lord.
5. Was you there when they rolled the stone away ? Was you there when they rolled the stone away ?
Oh, how them troubles would have made me a-trimble To have been there when they rolled the stone away.
6. Was you there when He rose up from the grave ? Was you there when He rose up from the grave ?
Oh, how them troubles would have made me a-trimble To have been there when He rose up from the grave.
B
Mrs. Harmon sang the following song at the same time, which she called 'another song about Judas."
i.Judy betrayed Him, Judy betrayed Him, Judy betrayed Him, And sold Him to the Jews.
2. Them Jews crucified Him, Them Jews crucified Him, Them Jews crucified Him,
And they nailed Him to the cross.
3. There He hung bleeding, There He hung bleeding, There He hung bleeding, With His head upon His breast.
4. Joseph begged His body, Joseph begged His body, Joseph begged His body, And He laid it in the tomb.
5. The tomb would not hold Him, The tomb would not hold Him, The tomb would not hold Him, And He burst the bands of death.
