Subject: Lyr Req: HE'S JUST THE SAME TODAY (2020-A)
From: 12003biloute
Date: 16 Jan 10 - 02:10 AM

Hello

Who can fill the missing words of the song "HE'S JUST THE SAME TODAY (2020-A)" from the album "Leadbelly ARC & Library of Congress Recordings Vol. 4 (1935-1938)" track 20 recorded in New York City in Decemberr 1938
This song was sung by Sarah GARLAND

Here is what I transcripted

Thank you so much for your help
Claude

When Moses and the Israelites from Egypt's land did flee
Behind them, were proud Pharaoh's host, in front of them the sea.
God raised the water like a wall, He opened up the way,
And the God that lived in Moses' time is just the same today.

In this old time religion it's good enough for me
It makes me happy when I'm alone and happiness you see
It makes me leap and jump and shout and fill my heart with joy
And there's a time you have there when you come down to die

When Daniel, faithful to his God, would not bow down to men,
And by his enemy he was hurled into the lion's den,
God locked the lion's jaw, we read, and robbed him of his prey,
And the God that lived in Daniel's time is just the same today.

Oh in this old time religion is good enough for me
It makes me happy when I'm alone and (????????)
It makes me leap and jump and shout and it fills my heart with joy
And there's a time you have there when you come down to die

*
*
*
And when the rich man came to die it was the same today

Oh in this old time religion it's good enough for me
It makes me happy when I'm alone and (????)
It makes me leap and jump and shout and fills my heart with joy
And there's a time you have there when you come down to die

When Pentecost had fully come and fire from Heaven did fall,
And like a holly ghost God's wind, baptized them one and all.
Three thousand were converted it makes soldiers right away,
And the God that lived in Pentecost is just the same today.

In this old time religion is good enough for me
It makes me happy when I'm at home and (????)
It makes me leap and jump and shout and fills my heart with joy
Oh there's a time you have there when you come down to die

Claud-

It would be odd if the chorus didn't repeat as you initially transcribed it:

"It makes me happy when I'm alone and happiness you see"

Are you convinced it is something different?

Hi Charley

It fits me very well, thank you
But do you have any idea about the third verse about the rich man?

Thanks again
Claude

He's Just the Same Today
by Elder J. Harvey Daily
Old School Hymnal
page 434

Verse 1:
When Moses and the Israelites from Egypt's land did flee; Behind them were proud Pharaoh's host, in front of them the sea; God raised the water like a wall and opened up the way. And the God that lived in the olden times is just the same today.

Chorus:
He's just the same today, He's just the same today. And the God that lived in the olden times, is just the same today.

Verse 2:
When David and Goliath met, the wrong against the right; The giant armed with human strength and David with God's might. God sent a stone by David's sling, the giant low did lay. And the God that lived in the olden times is just the same today.

Repeat chorus.

Verse 3:
When Daniel faithful to his God would not bow down to men; And by his enemies was hurled into the lion's den. God shut the lion's mouths we read, and robbed them of their prey. And the God that lived in the olden times is just the same today.

Repeat chorus.

Verse 4:
When Pentecost had fully come, and fire from heav'n did fall. The Saviour with the Holy Ghost baptized them one and all. Three thousand were converted and were added right away. And the God that lived in the olden times is just the same today.

Repeat chorus.

The chorus I learned is quite different: Just the same, Just the same; God is just the same today. Just the same, just the same, God is just the same today.

Well, I listened (many times!) to the recording mentioned above and this is what I hear (any uncertainties are noted):

*************************************

When Moses and the Israelites from Egypt's land did flee,
Behind them, were proud Pharaoh's [coach?], in front of them the sea.
God raised the water like a wall, He opened up the way,
And the God that lived in Moses' time is just the same today.

In this old time religion it's good enough for me,
It makes me happy when I'm alone and happy now you see.
It makes me leap and jump and shout and fill my heart with joy,
And that's the time you have there when you come down to die.

When Daniel, faithful to his God, would not bow down to men,
And by his enemies he was hurled into a lion's den,
God shut the lion's mouth, we read, and robbed him of his prey,
And the God that lived in Daniel's time is just the same today.

Oh, this old time religion is good enough for me,
It makes me happy when I'm alone and happy now you see.
It makes me leap and jump and shout and it fills my heart with joy,
And that's the time you have there when you come down to die.

The rich man he was [away?] all day, while Lazarus he was poor,
Ol' Lazarus begged for the crumbs that fell from the table to the floor.
The rich man turned poor Lazarus away and thought his soul was well,
But when the rich man came to die his soul was cast in hell.

Oh, this old time religion it's good enough for me,
It makes me happy when I'm alone and happy now you see.
It makes me leap and jump and shout and fill my heart with joy,
And that's the time you have there when you come down to die.

When Pentecost has fully come and fire from Heaven did fall,
And like a holy ghost [them?] winds baptized them one and all.
Three thousand were converted, made soldiers right away,
And the God who lived in Pentecost is just the same today.

Oh, this old time religion is good enough for me,
It makes me happy when I'm alone and happy now you see.
It makes me leap and jump and shout and fill my heart with joy,
Oh, that's the time you have there when you come down to die.

*************************************

That's how I hear it.


Jay
