Bruce Cockburn performs Blind Willie Johnson's WHAT IS THE SOUL OF A MAN?


Bruce Cockburn peforms a blues tune by Blind Willie Johnson. WHAT IS THE SOUL OF A MAN?

Won't somebody tell me, answer if you can!
Want somebody tell me, what is the soul of a man
I'm going to ask the question, answer if you can
If anybody here can tell me, what is the soul of a man?
Won't somebody tell me, answer if you can!
Want somebody tell me, what is the soul of a man
I've traveled in different countries, I've traveled foreign lands
I've found nobody to tell me, what is the soul of a man
I saw a crowd stand talking, I came up right on time
Were hearing the doctor and the lawyer, say a man ain't nothing but his mind
Won't somebody tell me, answer if you can!
Want somebody tell me, what is the soul of a man
I read the bible often, I tries to read it right
As far as I can understand, its nothing but a burning light!
Won't somebody tell me, answer if you can!
Want somebody tell me, what is the soul of a man
When Christ stood in the temple, the people stood amazed
Was showing the doctors and the lawyers, how to raise a body from the grave
Won't somebody tell me, answer if you can!
Want somebody tell me, what is the soul of a man
