You take Mary and Martha standin up in the hillside

up the hill
Tellin everybody their gonna need somebody on their bond

Whoa, you tak Maivus Staples and ole Corn Cheevers(?) they got the

My momma raised me in a room across from the church by the tree and that
sweet gospel music oh how it used to comfort me
Tellin everybody they're gonna need somebody on their bond

tunes; he plays it at many different tempos so find one that works for

something back.
