I will tell you, just what I saw, was not my business to see
but on that day she looked so sweet, I think she smiled at me.
Boss man said, "you keep your head down, look at her, you gonna die".
I keep workin' cuz, he got the gun, but all the time I see her cry.

Oh Lord, oh Lord, forgive my dirty deeds, please lead me to the promised land.
I done my time, cold chain around my leg, no pain, no burden, no more.
No pain, no burden, no more.

That man of hers, he treat her wrong, can't take that hand no more
she gotta leave before the day, they find her bleedin' on the floor
Days went by, I never saw again, that pretty dress she wore so well
I knew somehow and I cried so hard, I'll get that Johnny Dell

Oh Lord, oh Lord, forgive my dirty deeds, please lead me to the promised land.
I done my time, cold chain around my leg, no pain, no burden, no more.
No pain, no burden, no more.

Hangman jury, they don't know me, no judge gonna see my way
Jailer man please don't strap me down, will tomorrow be my day?
I will tell you just what I saw, was not my business to see
but on that day she looked so sweet, I think she smiled at me

Oh Lord, oh Lord, forgive my dirty deeds, please lead me to the promised land.
I done my time, cold chain around my leg, no pain, no burden, no more.
no pain, no burden, no more.
