Etta James

The Rock

Sinnerman

Nina Simone

Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to all on that day?

Run to the rock, "Please hide me"
Run to the rock, "Please hide me"
Run to the rock, "Please hide me Lord all on that day"

But the rock cried out “I can’t hide you”
The rock cried out “I can’t hide you”
The rock cried out “I aint gonna hide you” all on that day

I said rock, “Whats the matter with you rock”
“Don’t you see I need you rock”
Lord Lord Lord, all on that day

So I run to the river, it was bleeding
I run to the sea, it was bleeding
I run to the sea, it was bleeding all on that day

So I run to the river, it was boiling
So I run to the sea, it was boiling
So I run to the sea, it was boiling all on that day

So I run to the Lord, “Please hide me Lord”
“Don’t you see me praying?”
“Don’t you see me down here praying?”

But the Lord said “Go to the Devil”
The Lord said “Go to the Devil”
He said “Go to the Devil” all on that day

So I ran to the Devil, He was waiting
I ran to the Devil, He was waiting
I ran to the Devil, He was waiting, all on that day

I cried power Lord

So I run to the river, it was boiling
So I run to the sea, it was boiling
So I run to the sea, it was boiling all on that day

So I ran to the Lord, I said “Lord hide me, please hide me”
“Please help me” all on that day

He said “Child where were you?”
”When you aught to have been praying."
I said “Lord Lord here me praying, Lord Lord”
“Here me praying Lord, Lord”
“Here me praying” all on that day
"Sinner man, you aught to be praying."
“Aught to be praying sinnerman”
“Aught to be praying” all on that day

I cried power Lord
