Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Thou Shalt Not Be Afraid Of The Terror By Night

I want to say to my sisters and my brothers
Keep the faith
When the storm flies and the wind blows
Go on at a steady pace
When the battle is fought and the victory’s won
We can all shout together, we have overcome
We’ll talk to the Father and the Son
When we make it to the promised land

Chorus
If we walk together, little children
We won’t ever have to worry
Through this world of trouble
We’ve got to love one another
Let us take our fellow man by the hand
Try to help him to understand
We can all be together
For ever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

Our bible reads
Thou shalt not be afraid
Of the terror by night
Nor the arrow that flies by day
Nor for the pestilence
That walketh in the darkness
Nor for the destruction
That waiteth in the noonday hour

[chorus]

This world is not our home
We are only passing through
Our trail is all made up
Way beyond the blue
Let us do the very best that we can
While we’re travelin’ through this land
We can all be together
Shaking a hand
When we make it to the promised land

[chorus]

When we make it to the promised land children
Make it to the promised land children
Make it to the promised land children
Make it to the promised land
When we make it to the promised land sisters
Make it to the promised land children
We can all be together, forever and ever
When we make it to the promised land

  3. Got the Nightingales — they wrote that Jerry Song– on a youtube playlist, today is looking up.

    All this bible stuff is gonna get in my head, and when I see Bobby tomorrow and the acid kicks in I am gonna have some serious “Moses out of Egypt visions”

  4. Definitely one of my fave Jerry songs.
    There is a great Spotify playlist – roots of Jerry Garcia
    Which has a lot of the originals of Kerry’s cover songs.
    The Boones !do a promised land and Freddy Scott does a cool he ain’t give you none.
