Lyrics To If I Had Possession Over Judgment Day

If I had possession, over judgment day
If I had possession, over judgment day
Lord, the little woman I’m lovin’ wouldn’t, have no right to pray

And I went to the mountain, lookin’ as far as my eyes could see
And I went to the mountain, lookin’ as far as my eyes would see
Some other man got my woman, and these lonesome blues got me

And I rolled and I tumbled and I, cried the whole night long
And I rolled and I tumbled and I, cried the whole night long
Boy, I woke up this mornin’, mycuit roller gone

I said in my mind, “Yo’ trouble gon’ come some day1”

Now run here, baby, set down on my knee
Now run here, baby, set down on my knee
I wanna tell you all about the way they treated me

Note 1: alternatively “I felt in my mind, your trouble gon’ come some day”
instead of “I said in my mind, “Yo, trouble gon’ come some day” “.
