Subject: Lyr Req: We Are Living in the Last Days Now
From: GUEST,Jerry D
Date: 28 Dec 03 - 02:28 PM

This song was written and recorded by the Bailes Brothers back in the 40's. It's easy to understand *except* for the third line of the chorus:

Oh, sinner, go pray, ask forgiveness, my friend
For that judgment day is surely coming 'round.
Get [I]ready for that ??? ??? all coming down
We're living in the last days now.

Can anyone fill in the blanks for me?

Thanks!

Duh! I realized I don't need someone who knows the song, just someone with a good ear!

I've posted an mp3 of the troublesome passage, hoping 10 secs for such a purpose counts as fair use.

http://world.std.com/~gdallal/bailes.mp3

It starts with the third line.

Oh, sinner, go pray, ask forgiveness, my friend
For that judgment day is surely coming 'round.
Get ready for that ??? ??? all coming down
We're living in the last days now

Can anyone make sense of it?

Thanks, again!

Well, a 'good ear' would not be me...I am the deaf lady. You need Jim Dixon, I think....I did look, but 'last days' sent me to a LOT of fundamentalist Bible sites....no help.

Get ready for that city John saw coming down
We're living in the last days now


Nailed it in two, despite the short clip depriving me of hearing how their accent works. I'm sure I have it right--- didn;t even need to use Pacemaker to slow it down. Gotta have a good ear AND know yer theology. I'se a perfessional! :~)

Now how about the rest of the lyric, and an MP3 so I can hear it to learn it? We do that kinda stuff weekly, in our church service. (Join Mudcat, PM me an email addy, I can send you an addy that will accept the MP3).....

Fair's fair. I have about 4,000 gospel sound files but I don't have this one! But I'll swap ya ferrit!

Susan,

I'd kiss you, but my wife won't let me! Well, maybe if I ask her first.

That's almost what I'd heard except that I made the mistake of being certain that I'd heard "all" when the word was "saw". I couldn't figure out what "city John's all comming down" meant.

The Record Lady's copy skips. The word that's missing is "deeply"

"How He died to save poor sinners deeply bound". As you might guess from the location of the snippet, my email address is gdallal at world dot std dot com. I'm happy to discuss further off line.

post-1923 makes me anxious. That's why, for example, I've posted the lyrics to all of Charlie Poole's songs on my website, but no Carter Family lyrics. Different comfort levels for different people.

From Jerry, with chords. For sound file see link in an above post. A few other Bailes songs in other threads.

===========================================================

WE ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS NOW
Bailes Brothers

We have [I]heard the wondrous story of the Christ of Calvary
How He died to save poor sinners deeply [V]bound
He as[I]cended back to heaven but He said, "I'll come again"
We're living in the [V]last days [I]now.

CHORUS:
Oh, sinner, go pray, ask forgiveness, my friend
For that Judgement Day is surely coming [V]'round.
Get [I]ready for that city John saw coming down
We're living in the [V]last days [I]now.

Now God told Noah to build himself an ark
And for forty days and nights the rains come down
Sons of men ignored the prophecy just as they do today
We're living in the last days now.

As we read in Revelations, we find it all so true
The things that's taking place there can be found
Oh, you just can't get around it for it's true, it comes from God
We're living in the last days now.

SH

Also from Jerry.

=========================================================

YOU CAN'T GO HALF WAY
Bailes Brothers

Are you walking every day with Jesus all the way?
You can't go half way and get in
When old Satan worries you, there's one thing you can do
Just go all the way and get in

CHORUS:
Stop puttin' on a show, your pride will have to go
You can't go half way and get in
With your head high in the air, God's armor you can't wear
You can't go half way and get in

If you'll only do your best, Our Lord will do the rest
You can't go half way and get in
Kick old Satan from the race, put Jesus in his place
You can't go half way and get in

From your sins you'll have to part, let Jesus have your heart
You can't go half way and get in
Though you think you're livin' right, you're not walkin' in God's light
You can't go half way and get in


CHORDS:
| I                IV       I       |
| I                V                |
| I                IV       I       |
| I       V       I                |

       | IV                I                |
       | I                V                |
       | I                IV       I       |
       | I       V       I                |
