BEN HARPER lyrics : "louis collins"

( Mississippi John Hurt )




Mrs. Collins weeped, Mrs. Collins moaned,


To see her son Louis leavin' home

The angels laid him away


The angels laid him away,


They laid him six feet under the clay

The angels laid him away


Mrs. Collins weeped, Mrs. Collins moaned,


To see her son Louis leavin' home

The angels laid him away


Oh, Bob shot once and Louis shot too,


Shot poor Collins, shot him through and through

The angels laid him away


Oh, kind friends, oh, ain't it hard?,


To see poor Louis in a new graveyard

The angels laid him away


The angels laid him away,


They laid him six feet under the clay





The angels laid him away


Oh, when they heard that Louis was dead


All the people they dressed in red

The angels laid him away


The angels laid him away,


They laid him six feet under the clay

The angels laid him away


Mrs. Collins weeped, Mrs. Collins moaned,


To see her son Louis leavin' home

The angels laid him away


The angels laid him away,


They laid him six feet under the clay

The angels laid him away
