YOU'RE GONNA NEED THAT PURE RELIGION

cho: You're gonna need that pure religion. Hallelu!
You're gonna need that pure religion. Hallelu!
You're gonna need that pure religion.
Pure religion take you home to heaven.
You're gonna need that pure religion. Hallelu!

Mother and father by the bed a cryin'. Hallelu!
Mother and father by the bed a cryin'. Hallelu!
Mother and father by the bed a cryin'.
Said, "Lord have mercy! Our child is dyin'."
You're gonna need that pure religion. Hallelu!

Doctor standin' lookin' sad. Hallelu!
Doctor standin' lookin' sad. Hallelu!
Doctor standin' lookin' sad.
"Let the lord have mercy! Our child is dead."
You're gonna need that pure religion. Hallelu! (Chorus)

See that train comin' round the curve. Hallelu!
See that train comin' round the curve. Hallelu!
See that train comin' round the curve.
Now she is strainin' every nerve.
You're gonna need that pure religion . Hallelu!

[As sung by Lucinda Williams on "Ramblin'," Smithsonian Folkways 1991 reissue.]
