JOB SINGS THE BLUES          by Bill Charles

 

I’m all dressed up in sackcloth, and I’ve got ashes on my head.  (2X)

I’ve lost my health, I’ve lost my riches, and my children all are dead.

My friends, they say to me, “Job, you must have done something wrong,

Or why else would a loving God let you suffer for so long?”

Well, I maintain my innocence.  Now, hear me if you please.

If all I’ve got is friends like you, I don’t need enemies!

 

Oh, I’m all dressed up in sackcloth, and I’ve got ashes on my head.

I’ve lost my health, I’ve lost my riches, and my children all are dead.

 

My woman’s so angry with me.  She says to me, “Bless God and die.”  (2X)

I try so hard to find the answer, but I really don’t know why.

My friends, they say to me, “Job, you must have done something wrong,

Or why else would a loving God let you suffer for so long?”

Well, I maintain my innocence.  Now, hear me if you please.

If all I’ve got is friends like you, I don’t need enemies!

 

I’m all dressed up in sackcloth, and I’ve got ashes on my head.  (2X)

I’ve lost my health, I’ve lost my riches, and my children all are dead.
