Jonah and the Whale (Armstrong Louis)

Jonah was a man who got a word from the Lord “Go and preach the Gospel to the sinful land" But he got on a ship and he tried to get away And he ran into a storm in the middle of the sea Now the Lord, He made the waves just roll so high The ship begin to sink and they all begin to cry So they pulled ole Jonah out of the hole And they jumped him in the water just to lighten up the load Now the Lord made a whale, long and wide Lord, Lord waddnat a fish And he swallowed up Jonah, hair and hide Lord, Lord waddnat a fish Mmm, Lord, mmm, Lord Now Jonah started to pray in the belly of the whale Lord, Lord waddnat a fish He repented of his sins like a man in jail Lord, Lord waddnat a fish Mmm, Lord, mmm, Lord Now Jonah must o’ been a bad man, he must o’ been a sinner Lord, Lord waddnat a fish 'Cos when the whale got him down, he didn’t like his dinner Lord, Lord waddnat a fish Mmm, Lord, mmm, Lord Well, he swum around the ocean, sick as he could be Lord, Lord waddnat a fish And after three days, whoops, he had to set him free Lord, Lord waddnat a fish, mmm So the whale spit Jonah out onto dry land Lord, Lord waddnat a fish And he went on to preaching like a righteous man Lord, Lord waddnat a fish Then the people quit their sins when they heard him in the town Lord, Lord waddnat a fish So when you hear the call, don’t you turn the Gospel down Lord, Lord waddnat a fish, mmm
