Thread Name: Origins: AMEN (Jester Hairston)
Subject: RE: AMEN
I'm not sure, but in the version I recall hearing there is a different refrain every other "verse". A series of A-mens variously followed by "Let me hear it now", "Say it again", "Jesus is the Savior" and "I'm a gonna go to Heaven, now". I suppose there could be any number of refrains, or mabey they are the verses and the amens are the chorus.
