Would that be, He Touched Me, which I think does include the line [somebody touched me] ???

I think that is a different song, This one has in the chorus--Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me, glory glory , glory, somebody touched me, glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me, must have been the hand of the Lord. But I don't know the verses.

Mahalia Jackson sang it. From memory:

Well, well, well
Somebody touched me (3x)
Must be the hand of the Lord.

The chording is essentially Em A7 and B7, similar to "Keep Your Hand On The Plow". There are numerous couplets that make up additional verses, as you can imagine, but I am afradi I do not remember any of them.

I think the first recording I heard of this one was the one by Carl Story and His Mountaineers, although it was also recorded by the Dillards. There are many verses to the song, some of htem added after the fact, but here are the ones I use:

While I was singing, somebody touched me (3X) It must have been the hand of our Lord.

While I was praying, somebody toucned me (3X It must have been the hand of our Lord.

While I was preaching, somebody touched me (3X) It must have been the hand of our Lord.

While I was sleeping, somebody touched me (3X) It must have been the hand of our Lord.

As I said, many verses have been added over the years, but these will suffice. This song is best sung as a call-and-response one, with the lead singing the "While I was..." and everyone doing the "Somebody touched me" and everyone singing the last line. Works great for us in our nursing home appearances. Enjoy!

Dobro Bob has it. The beauty of this song is that you can make up verses. "While I was on Mudcat, somebody touched me." "While I was dreaming, somebody touched me." "While I was sweating, somebody touched me." Etc., Etc.
