John the Revelator
Son House Lyrics


Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seal

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Well, who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seal

You know God walked down in the cool of the day, called Adam by his name
And he refused to answer, because he's naked and ashamed

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seal

You know Christ had twelve apostles, and three he led away
Said "Watch with me one hour, 'til I go yon' and pray"

Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seal

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seal

Christ came on Easter morning, Mary and Martha went down to see
"Go tell my disciples, to meet me in Galilee"

Tell me who's writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seal

Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Who's that writin', John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin', John the Revelator wrote the book of the seven seal

This isn't made beautiful because of the absence of instruments. It's beautiful because he didn't need any to say what he needed to say.

Because God spoke words first to man and man in return writ

Like Lead Belly doing Black Betty. Just him slapping his thigh and stomping, and it's perfect.

Never fails to give me the chills. Real American music history right here.

Not the most religious person, but every time I hear this I feel it in my soul

@Tim Schulz amen brother

Oh yeah... this is the real deal. Just a human being communicating in the most raw, most elemental way possible, whether you believe or not. He's reaching out to touch other people and completely succeeding.

How is that religious...?
