These Men Of God

Lyrics: Red Ellis, Phyllis Williams, Jimmy Williams
Music: Red Ellis, Phyllis Williams, Jimmy Williams

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Black Mountain Boys on an unknown date in 1964 with Herb Peterson as a guest, and with the Asphalt Mountain Boys. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

Go down yonder Moses down in the land of Egypt
Tell old Pharoah to set my children free
Moses did obey, he set them children free

Climb up on the mountain God told Abraham
Take your son and burn him God told Abraham
Abraham obeyed then God gave him a ram

Take your horn and blow it God told Joshua
The walls of Jericho fell God had his way
Joshua obeyed then God had his way
