lyrics

Anna, oh Anna
bury your dead at the cross roads
Anna, oh Anna
bury your dead
Johnson, oh Johnson
on your knees at the crossroads
Johnson, oh Johnson
go sell your soul at the crossroads
Sixty-first and forty-ninth
by twenty-seven you will die
so go sell your soul
Dark waters and faces of black
Dark waters and faces of black
Dark waters and faces of black
I’m barefoot, I'm naked, and I’m crying
Im barefoot, I'm naked, and I'm crying
Im barefoot, I'm naked, and I'm crying
Im barefoot, I'm naked, and I’m crying

Oh meet me, oh Anna
Oh meet me by the bodies, the bodies, the bodies
Oh meet me by the delta blues
Oh meet me, oh Anna, oh

I’m barefoot, I'm naked, and I’m crying
Im barefoot, I'm naked, and I'm crying
Im barefoot, I'm naked, and I'm crying
Im barefoot, I'm naked, and I’m crying
Before you, before you
