final final transcript:

the "Good Morning, Mr. Walker" version.

Out on the Rollin' Sea

Rollin' sea when Jesus speak to Jonah
Rollin' sea when it roll
Rollin' sea when Jesus speak to me
Rollin' sea when it roll

Rollin' sea...

Tell you bout Jonah make his sin to go
With the mariners wanna know, "Did Nineveh fall?"
The prophet he left, went out, and set sail
Went out on the ocean but a terrible gale
The seamen beheld, while their face grew white...

Rollin' sea when Jesus speak to me
Rollin' sea when it roll
Rollin' sea when Jesus speak to me
Rollin' sea when it roll

Seamen beheld while their face grew white;
Bene'icite! What a terrible what a wonderful sight
Behold a great whale on the crest of the wave
Swallow the prophet no man could save
But Jesus told the fish and he gave the command

Creator saw the rock outstand
Our ground the sinking sun
For up on the way he chose upon the son
The bin and the bait came a-throw it down
Tell you bout something that I durst know man
But still don't know...

Jonah and that fish, ain't 'bout to lie,
Someone? Anyone 'live?
Pray for Jonah
Down on Nineveh's bank
On the bank of Zion
Was out on the roll...

Been away yonder on the mountain top
To hear what they spoke of the chariot stop
Tell you 'bout Jonah make his sin to go
Domin, is Nineveh low?
In the morning sun, they was out on the roll...

Tell of one, Ishmael, Abraham's son
The burden of Isaac, the dreadful one,
Tell about Judah was killed by a fall
Solomon built the Millo to lift up that wall
Low in the morning sun, he was out...
