clothed in naught but the darkness, ol’ sinnerman shook his head like a dog, trying to get the sweat out of  his eyes. not that it mattered if  he could see.  rejected by both Jehovah and Beelzebub…..      he had nowhere to go.

when e’en Lucifer

has shunned ye…..      oh, sinnerman,

just what did you do?

“Sinnerman”    Nina Simone

lyrics ~
{i think these lyrics are incomplete but hopefully not inaccurate.}

Songwriters:  Nina Simone

Oh, Sinnerman, where you gonna run to?
Sinnerman, where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna run to?
All along dem day.

Well I run to the rock, please hide me.
I run to the Rock, please hide me.
I run to the Rock, please hide me, Lord.
All along dem day.

But the rock cried out, I can’t hide you.
The Rock cried out, I can’t hide you.
The Rock cried out, I ain’t gonna hide you guy.
All along dem day.

I said, “Rock, what’s a matter with you, Rock?”
“Don’t you see I need you, Rock?”
Lord, Lord, Lord.
All along dem day.

So I run to the river, it was bleedin’.
I run to the sea, it was bleedin’.
I run to the sea, it was bleedin’.
All along dem day.

So I run to the river, it was boilin’.
I run to the sea, it was boilin’.
I run to the sea, it was boilin’.
All along dem day.

So I ran to the Lord, please hide me, Lord.
Don’t you see me prayin’?
Don’t you see me down here prayin’?

But the Lord said, “Go to the devil.”
The Lord said, “Go to the devil.”
He said, “Go to the devil.”
All along dem day.

So I ran to the devil, he was waitin’.
I ran to the devil, he was waitin’.
I ran to the devil, he was waitin’.
All on that day.

I cried, power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Power

Bring down (Power to da Lord)
Bring down (Power to da Lord)
Bring down (Power to da Lord)
Bring down (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

Well, I run to the river, it was boilin’.
I run to the sea, it was boilin’.
I run to the sea, it was boilin’.
All along dem day.

So I ran to the Lord I said,
“Lord hide me, please hide me.”
“Please help me.”
All along dem day.

He said, “Child, where were you
When you ought a been prayin’?”
I said,”Lord, Lord, hear me prayin’.”
Lord, Lord, hear me prayin’.
Lord, Lord, hear me prayin’.”
All along dem day.

Sinnerman you ought a be prayin’.
Ought a be prayin’, Sinnerman.
Ought a be prayin’.
All on that day.

I cried, power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)

Go down (Power to da Lord)
Go down (Power to da Lord)
Go down (Power to da Lord)

Power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)
Power (Power to da Lord)

Oh woh, power, power, Lord.
Don’t you know.
Don’t you know, I need you Lord?
Don’t you know that I need you?
Don’t you know that I need you?
Power, power, power, Lord.

  1. if even hell wont take you…where does that leave you? to walk the earth somewhere in between?

  2. You talkin to me?

    You can run, but you can’t hide. Never can have too much Nina, either. Loved the entire offering, dani.

  4. ugh…trying to get the sweat out of his eyes…not a nice place to be…feeling a bit sweaty just by reading it…nicely penned dani

  5. I can never get enough Nina Simone!

  6. I liked your concept dani.. Great 55 and Haibun!
