“We Done Told You”

In the year of 19 and 18,
God sent a mighty disease.
It killed many a-thousand,
on land and on the seas.

The nobles said to the people,
“You better close your public schools,
And until death passes you by,
you better close all your churches, too.”
The great disease was mighty
and the people were sick everywhere,
It was an epidemic,
and it travelled through the air.

Well, God is warning the nation,
He’s a-warning them every way.
To turn away from evil
and seek the Lord and pray.
Well, we done told you,
our God’s done warned you,
Jesus coming soon.
We done told you,
our God’s done warned you,
Jesus coming soon.
