Old man Jonah sittin’ in his chair got no teeth and got no hair
Got no daughter and got no son he’s just waitin’ ‘till the rapture come
Waitin’ ‘till the rapture come

He never did marry and he never went far never bought a house or a big ole car
But he ain’t no beggar and he sure ain’t dumb he’s just waitin’ ‘till the rapture come
Waitin’ ‘till the rapture come

And when the rapture come the Lord’s gonna call his name
(When the rapture come) Jonah’s gonna put down his cane
(When the rapture come) Heaven’s gonna take him away
But until that day…

Old man Jonah’s got an old brass horn had it since the day that he was reborn
But he ain’t gonna blow for just anyone he’s gonna wait ‘till the rapture come
Waitin’ ‘till the rapture come


Preacher come a-walkin’ down that country mile said ‘hey Jonah, know it’s been a while’
But Jonah keep his eyes on the settin’ sun he’s just waitin’ ‘till the rapture come
Waitin’ ‘till the rapture come
Waitin’ ‘till the rapture come
