Lonesome hollering from a hootie owl, a
Sign a sign, soul beware
Cries, cries from the black swampie darkness
No one hears, no one cares

Flesh is dropping, dropping, dropping
Flesh is dropping from the bone
Bone is crumbling, crumbling, crumbling
Flesh and bone will be as one

Mama, Daddy, Granny, Grandpa
Aunties, Uncles side by side
All my people, all my people
All my people laying side by side

One little plot left side my Mama
One little plot left there you see
One little plot waiting patient
One little plot waiting there for me

Spare me from these fearful spirits
Hovering ‘round my fragile door
Running through my waking sorrow
Jesus spare me wings to soar

Mama, Daddy, Granny, Grandpa
Aunties, Uncles side by side
All my people, all my people
All my people laying side by side

When I’m in the arms of Jesus
There I’ll find the home I seek
Jesus, you my Mama, Jesus, you my daddy
When I lay down, my soul You keep
When I lay down, my soul You keep
Jesus…Jesus…Jesus…Jesus….
