Lord I Just Can't Keep From Cryin' Sometimes
Blind Willie Johnson

  Lord, I just can’t keep from cryin’ sometimes (2)
  With my heart full of sorrow and my eyes filled with tears
  Lord, I just can’t keep from cryin’ sometimes

My mother often told me
Angel born, it’s your life away
She said I wouldn’t accomplish
But trust in God and pray
I’m on the King’s highway
I’m trustin’ Him ev’ry day

My mother she’s in glory
Thank God I’m on my way
Father he’s gone, too
And sister she couldn’t stay
I’m trustin’ Him ev’ry day
Went to Alabama, I fought’em away

I thought when she first left me
I’d grieve for a little while
Soon it all would be over
I’d done it all with a smile
But the thought that I’d get older
I think of what I told her
