If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day

Lyrics: Robert Johnson
Music: Robert Johnson

Robert Hunter sang this in a performance on 31 October 1998.

If I had possession over judgment day
if I had possession over judgment day
That little girl I'm lovin' wouldn't have no right to pray

And I went to the mountain, lookin' far as my eyes could see
And I went to the mountain, lookin' far as my eyes could see
Another man got my woman and the worried blues got me

If I had possession over judgment day
if I had possession over judgment day
That little woman I been lovin' wouldn't have no chance to pray

Come here sweet mama, sit upon my knees
Come here sweet baby, sit on my knees
I want to tell you all about how they mistreated me

If I had possession over judgment day
if I had possession over judgment day
That little girl I been lovin' wouldn't have no right to pray
