rich r Origins: Jesus Met Woman at the Well/Maid & Palmer (53* d) Lyr Add: THE WOMAN AT THE WELL 17 Feb 99


The Woman At The Well (from Rise Up Singing)

Jesus met the woman at the well (3x)
And he told her everything she'd ever done.

He said, "Woman, woman, where is your husband? (3x)
I know everything you've ever done."

She said, "Jesus, Jesus, I ain't got no husband (3x) And you don't know everything I've ever done."

He said, " Woman, woman, you've got 5 husbands (3x)
And the one you have now is not your own.

She said, "This man, this man, he must be a prophet (3x)
He done told me everything I've ever done.
