True Religion
Hot Tuna Lyrics


Momma take the pillow from under my head, now
Allelu
Said take the pillow from under my head
Allelu

Now, take the pillow from under my head
Jesus's gonna make up my dyin' bed
Then you'll need that true religion
Allelu
Doctor, doctor, lookin' sad
Allelu
Well, doctor, doctor said lookin' sad
Allelu

And doctor, doctor now lookin' sad
"Strangest case I ever had"
Then you'll need that true religion
Allelu

Crossin' Jordan, I need not fear
Allelu
Well, crossin' Jordan, I need not fear
Allelu

Said, crossin' Jordan, I need not fear
Jesus' gonna be the engineer
Then you'll need that true religion
Allelu

Momma take the pillow from under my head, now
Allelu
Said take the pillow from under my head
Allelu

Well, take the pillow from under my head
Jesus's gonna make up my dyin' bed
Then you'll need that true religion
Allelu

And I cried, you'll need that true religion
Allelu

A friend left this album behind in my basement 200 years ago & I just stashed it atop some books with the cover art out. No idea it was an acoustic Jefferson Airplane mutation. Ignored it for a year. One day I planned to go record hunting for new tunes with $50. There was a blizzard. Never went for the lps. Instead, still having an itch for new music, I took down the Burgers lp & gave it a spin. The following week I bought every Hot Tuna album I could find.

@Tom B 50 years later (from the first time I was introduced to them in concert 11/23/70), I'm still listening and more importantly supporting the musicians by going to see them whenever I can.

Acoustic only these days, as I've long since found the electric part of their show being way too loud. It's all good though. '

Been a fan for more than 30 years. Everyone wants to make money, but to these guys and others like them, the music has always been important. Burgers is easily my favorite by this great band.
