Soon One Mornin' Death Come Creepin'

Soon one mornin' death come creepin' in my room, (3)
O my Lord, O my Lord,what shall l do to be saved?

Death done been here, tuck my mother an' gone,

Death done been here, left me a motherless child,

Don't move my pillow until my Jesus comes,

When Jesus comes, you can turn my bed around,

I'm so glad I got my religion in time,

From Our Singing Country, Lomax. Collected from Vera Hall & Dock
  Reed, AL, 1917
