Parchman Farm Blues/ Preachin' Blues (Up Jumped The Devil) - Lyrics

Judge give me life this mornin'
Down on Parchman Farm
Judge give me life this mornin'
Down on Parchman Farm
I would hate it so bad
But I left my wife in mournin'
Oh, goodbye wife
All you have done gone
Oh, goodbye wife
All you have done gone
But I hope that some day
You will tell my lonesome song
Oh, listen you men
I don't mean no harm
Oh, listen you men
So don't mean no harm
If you wanna do good
You better telephone Parchman Farm
We got to work in the mornin'
Just a dawn of day
We got to work in the mornin'
Just a dawn of day
Just to the sayin' if the sundown
When your work is done
I'm down on old Parchman Farm
But I sho' wanna go back home
I'm down on old Parchman Farm
But I sho' wanna go back home
But I hope someday I will overcome

Writer(s): R. JOHNSON, Bukka White
