I Bid You Goodnight Lay down, my dear brothers, lay down and take your rest Won't you lay your head down on your saviour's breast I love you, but Jesus loves you the best And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight And I bid you goodnight, goodnight, goodnight Lay down, my dear sisters, friends, (name: "Spence"), etc. Well, one of these mornings, bright, early, and soon Good night, good night, good night Not a cricket, not a spirit going to shout me on Gonna walk through the valley of the shadow of Death The rod and staff shall comfort me Jesus and Moses shall follow me on Well, John Divine said, I saw the sign John said, I saw a number of signs Tell an A for the Ark, that wonderful boat She build it on the land, gettin' water to float her Give a B for the Beast at the ending of the world Gonna eat up all the children that would not be good I remember right well, I remember right well Gonna walk in Jerusalem just like John First heard from Any Old Time at the 1980 Harbor College Folk Festival; learned from the Real Bahamas record. Divine is pronounced, de wine, and Valley of the Shadow of Death is, walley o' the shadder o' death. JN JN apr96
