Sunday and Sister Jones (LP版) - Roberta Flack (羅貝塔·弗蘭克)

It was early Sunday evening just before the death of day

 

All the family friends were grieving

 

Rev Jones just passed away

 

Sister Jones had seen it coming

 

She was familiar with the signs

 

Late one night I heard her humming while strolling through the Georgia pines

 

She said lord if you take him away I don't want to live

 

It was early Sunday morning just before the birth of day

 

I can hear the rooster crowing

 

Sister Jones knelt down and prayed

 

She said

 

Lord he's slipping through my fingers

 

Is death

 

Is death the master of us all

 

Lord I'm humble here before you

 

Just grant this life and don't let him fall

 

She said lord if you take him away

 

I don't want to live another day

 

Later on that Sunday evening just before the midnight dawn

 

Sister Jones was heavy breathing

 

I still hear her mourning song

 

Life was crying from her body like water from a drying well

 

Well I heard her whisper thank you Jesus just before the midnight bell

 

Sister Jones was taken away she didn't live

 

Sister Jones was taken away she did not live another day

 

Sister Jones was taken away she didn't live

 

Sister Jones was taken away she didn't live another day
