The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Hear Jerusalem Moan

Well, the Methodist preacher, you can tell him where he go
Don't you hear Jerusalem moan
Don't never let a chicken get big enough to crow
Don't you 5 hear Jerusalem 1 moan

That souls are singin' and the joy bells a-ringin'
Don't you 5 hear Jerusalem 1 moan

Well, the Baptist preacher you can tell him by his coat,...

Well, the Holy Roller preacher sure am a sight,...

Well, the Presbyterian preacher he lives in town,...
Neck's so stiff he can hardly look around,...
