    You got to move
    You got to move
    You got to move, child
    You got to move
    But when the Lord
    Gets ready
    You got to move

    (guitar)

    You may be high
    You may be low
    You may be rich, child
    You may be po'
    But when the Lord gets ready
    You've got to move

    (guitar)

    You see that woman
    That walk the street
    You see the policeman
    Out on his beat
    But when the Lord gets ready
    You got to move

    (guitar)

    You got to move
    You got to move
    You've got to move, child
    You've got to
    But when the Lord gets ready
    You got to move.

  • Mississippi Fred McDowell - Freight Train Blues

    3:09

    Lyrics:

    I got on that freight train; I tried to beat my way.
    Lord, them rocks and gravel, Lord, flew all in my face. (What happened, boy?)

    I asked the conductor, let me ride it blind. (Okay...)
    I asked the conductor to let me ride it blind. (What did he say?)
    Lord, he shook his head, said, The train ain't none of mine.

    (Left you shook up, then...)

    I got a letter from Hot Spring. I tell you how it was read. (Feel any better, boy.)
    I got a letter from Hot Spring. I tell you how it was read.
    Lord, it's come at once, boy: your sure-'nough gal is dead. (...know whether to go blind, then...)
    Come at, come at once, sure-'nough gal, sure-'nough gal is dead.

    Said I left my baby standin' out back door cryin'. (Felt like somethin' else.)
    I left my baby standing out back door cryin'.
    I never felt so sorry, Lord, till she said goodbye.
    Lord, she—, Lord, she said good—, Lord, she said goodbye.

    Ten songs recorded by McDowell when he was appearing in England during the mid-'60s. The short introductions to each song are really endearing, like this one to track 2- This is Big Fat Mamma with the meat shanks on your bones, ev'ry time you shimmy baby some man's dollar gone. That's the first song i learned how to play. The production is solid and straightforward: vocals center left, guitar right-mixed. Fred delivers these songs without ego.
