"God Rest His Soul" as written by and Stephen Charles Alaimo....
A man lay dying in the streets
A thousand people fell down on their knees
Any other day he would have been
Preaching
Reaching all the people there
Oh Lord Lord

But Lord knows I can't change what I saw
I Say God Rest His Soul

The Memphis battleground was red
Cause blood came pouring from his head
Women and children fallin' down
Crying
For the man they loved so well
Oh Lord, Lord
But Lord knows I can't change what I saw
I say God rest his soul

(I break here)

But Lord knows I can't change what I saw
I say God rest his soul

The morning sun will rise again
With all the passions growing thin
What we gonna do when war is come and we're
Dying
Dying for the cause I know

(Yeah but)
But Lord knows I can't change what I saw
Say God rest his soul
