Run, Come See Jerusalem ‘Blind Blake’ Higgs

Was in nineteen hundred and twenty nine, (A) I remember that (E)day pretty well,
(A)Nineteen (A7)hundred and (D)twenty nine, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, they were talkin' 'bout a storm on the island, my God, what a (E)beautiful morning,
(A)Talkin' 'bout a (A7)storm on the (D)island, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, there were three ships leavin' out the harbor, the Ethel and the Myrtle (E)and the Pretoria,
(A)Three ships (A7)leavin' out the (D)harbor, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, well, the Ethel was bound for Stannard Creek, my God, what a (E)beautiful morning,
The (A)Ethel was (A7)bound for (D)Stannard Creek, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, well, the Myrtle was bound for the Fresh Creek, with mothers and (E)children on board,
The (A)Myrtle was (A7)bound for the (D)Fresh Creek, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, well, the Pretoria was out on the ocean, swinging from side to (E)side with the waves,
The Pre(A)toria was (A7)out on the (D)ocean, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, then a great sea built up in the northwest, my God, what a (E)beautiful morning,
A (A)great sea (A7)built up in the (D)northwest, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, well, the first sea hit the Pretoria, mothers screamed with (E)children on board,
The (A)first sea (A7)hit the Pre(D)toria, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, well, it sank the boat down to the bottom, mothers screamed with (E)children on board,
(A)Sank the boat (A7)down to the (D)bottom, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, there were thirty-three souls on the water, singing and praying to the (E)Daniel God,
(A)Thirty-three (A7)souls on the (D)water, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

My God, now George Brown, he was the captain, he said, "My (E)children, come pray,"
(A)George Brown, (A7)he was the (D)captain, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

He said, "Come now, witness your judgement," he said, "My (E)children, come pray,"
(A)"Come now, (A7)witness your (D)judgement," run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.

There'll be no more waiting on Andros, run come see, (E)run come see,
(A)No more (A7)waiting on (D)Andros, run, come (A)see Je(E)rusa(A)lem.
