If I Had Possession over Judgment Day [Johnson]

[Covers]

The performance was a "raucous rocketship ride through Johnson's eerie classic."
--Sonicnet Music News of the World, 1999/03/28.

 

Lyrics

if i had possession, over judgment day
if i had possession, over judgment day
lord, the little woman i'm lovin' wouldn't, have no right to pray

and i went to the mountain, lookin' as far as my eyes could see
and i went to the mountain, lookin' as far as my eyes would see
some other man got my woman, and these lonesome blues got me

and i rolled and i tumbled and i, cried the whole night long
and i rolled and i tumbled and i, cried the whole night long
boy, i woke up this mornin', my biscuit roller gone

had to fold my arms and i, slowly walked away
had to fold my arms and i, slowly walked away
i said in my mind, "yo' trouble gon' come some day"

now run here, baby, set down on my knee
now run here, baby, set down on my knee
i wanna tell you all about the way they treated me
