Looking for lyrics for an old spiritual "I Know King Jesus Is My Friend". I first heard it years ago on an old Josh White record.

Found this
and this
and this (pdf)
all of which are sorta "bluesy" but none of which is exactly what you are looking for. Sorry.

Maybe Whizzy/Susan or Dicho will be along--they are sort of the resident X-spurts on spirituals.

I'm pretty sure that it's the one that Masato posted. The texts of the other ones are not it, but thanks a lot for the help. Now I need the words for this.

Hi, Rolfyboy6. Welcome to Mudcat membership!

We'll do some looking, but in the meantime check out the African-American Spirituals Permathread... where a couple of other good ones are indexed.

Hey, maybe you have a few we've missed, to add?

~Susan

Josh White's song is the only one I could find- but no lyrics given.

I know King Jesus is my friend, cos he saved my soul from sin
I'm so happy my saviour took me in
yes I'm bound to go to glory cos my trust is in the lord
what a wonderful feeling that my saviour made me whole

when the spirit moves me Lord it thrills me through and through
I jump up and down on the floor shouting Glory Hallelu
yes every time I feel the spirit I just have to sing
singing glory Halleluia, glory to his name.

sorry I made a mistake in the next to the last line, it should be

'Every time I feel the spirit I forget my shame'

It's 50 years since I used to listen to Josh on TV so a slight memory lapse could be forgiven.
