Tryin to Get Home – By Reverend Gary Davis from his album: Harlem Street Singer

Lord I waded through the water tryin’ to get home
Lord I waded through the water tryin’ to get home
Lord I waded though the water
Lord I waded
Lord I waded through the water

Nobody knows the trouble I’m havin’ tryin’ to get home
Nobody knows the trouble I’m havin’ tryin’ to get home
Nobody knows the trouble I’m havin’ Oh! Lord!
Yeah Lord

Lord I’m havin’ a mighty heap of trouble tryin to get home
Lord I’m havin’ a mighty heap of trouble tryin’ to get home
Lord I’m havin’ a mighty heap of trouble
Yeah! Lord!

Nobody knows how I’ve been moanin’ tryin’ to get home
Nobody knows how I’ve been moanin’ tryin’ to get home
Nobody knows how I’ve been moanin’
Yeah! Lord!
Hey! Lord!

Lord, I’ve been moanin’ and been cryin’ tryin to get home
I been moanin’ I been cryin’ tryin to get home
I been moanin’ I been cryin’
Yeah!

I’m goin’ to sit down rest from my labour when I get home
I’m goin’ to sit down rest from my labour
I’m goin’ to sit down rest from my labour
Yeah!

I’ll be done with the works of the Devil when I get home
I’ll be done with the works of the Devil when I get home
I’ll be done with the works of the Devil!
I’ll be done with the works of the Devil (talk to me then) (Ad Lib)
