about

Traditional. Erroneous lyrics copped from the Oak Publications book of the Anthology of American Folk Music. Sheesh, if you can't trust them, whom can you trust? Neither them nor I.

lyrics

Who's that writing the book of the seven seals?
John the Revelator
What's John writing?
About the Revelator
[unintelligible grunting], thousand cried holy mountain of balsam, son of our God
Daughter of Zion, Judah the Lion, the saviour said he bought us with the blood
He's the straight advocator, catch him on the battle of Zion
Tell him the story, writing the glory of God, Lord so to love him from high
Moses to Moses, watching the flock, saw the book where he had to stop
God told Moses "Take off your shoes. Out of the flock, now, you are Jews" [sic]
