church bell tone lyrics – john lee hooker

people i thought i heard, i thought i heard, heard them
church bell tone
well, i thought i heard , i heard, thought i heard this
mornin’, thought i heard the church bell tone
it might be tonin’ for my baby, my baby she been mighty
low

way down, way down in shady land, way down, way down, way
down in shady land
there’s two great white horses, they gonna drive my baby
away
well, two, two great white horses, comin’ to drive my
baby to the buryin’ ground

hmmm, gonna take her down to a buryin’ ground
i hate to see the two great white horses comin’
that ol’ he*rs* gonna back up to the door
i know i heard, i know i heard, i know i heard, a church
bell tone this mornin’
hmm, i know i heard, heard the church bell tone
i said, “bye bye, baby, bye bye, baby, i know we’ll never
meet again
hmmm, we’ll never meet no more; goodbye, baby, goodbye
darlin’ “
