God Moves Over the Water

cho: God moves on the water, (3x)
     And the people had to run and pray.

In the year of nineteen and twelve,
On-a April the thirteenth day,
When the great Titanic was sinkin' down,
Well, the peoples had to run and pray.

When the great Titanic was sinkin' down,
Well, they throwed lifeboats around,
Cryin', "Save the womens and childrens
And let the mens go down."

When the lifeboats got to the landin'
The womens turned around,
Cryin', "Look 'way across that ocean, Lawdy,
At my husband drown."

Cap'n Smith was a-lyin' down,
Was asleep for he was tired;
Well, he woke up in a great fright
As many gunshots were fired.

Well, that Jacob Nash was a millionaire
Lawd, he had plenty of money to spare;
When the great Titanic was sinkin' down,
Well, he could not pay his fare.

From Our Singing Country, Lomax. Collected from Lightnin'
   Washington, TX, 1933
