Subject: Lyr Add: JESUS SAYS GO (Dillard Chandler)

I'm trying to learn Dillard Chandler's "Jesus Says Go" (on Dark Holler), but he's pretty difficult to understand. The words, as I hear them, are below. I'd love a second set of ears checking these, especially the second verse. Let me know what you hear...


When I was a sinner the people would say
If you wanna be converted you'd better pray
So trust in them's found the lord
For he has promised a sure reward

Jesus says go I'll go with you
Preach the gospel and I'll preach with you
Lord if I go tell me what to say
For they won't believe on me

When I started out on my way to pray
I'll tell you what the spirit did say
Come unto me for I am the way
And I intend in time to pray
The more I prayed the worse I felt
At last I thought my heart would melt

Jesus says go…

Well my hands was tied, my feet was bound
The elements opened and the Lord come down
The voice I heard sound so sweet
The love run out at the soul of my feet

Jesus says go…

Well its doubts may ride and troubles may roll
But god said he'd save your sin-sick soul

Jesus says go…

I recorded Cas Wallin's version of this. Cas was a neighbour of Dillard Chandler and knew him well. However, Cas did not sing Dillard's second verse, though he did sing some verses that Dillard omitted! You can hear Cas on the Musical Traditions double CD "Far in the Mountains" volumes 3 & 4 (available in the States from Camsco, I think). Cas called it "The Preacher's Song".

I forgot to say that you can check out Cas Wallin's text by going to the Musical Traditions website (www.mustrad.org.uk). Click onto "Records" then onto "MT Records". Then scroll down until you see the album & click onto booklet notes.

Banjocircus: I'd say your transcription is perfect (except for one small spelling error: "sole of my feet").
