Al Green Battle Hymn Of The Republic

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

He hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword;

His truth is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.

I have seen him in the watch fires of a hundred circling camps,

They have builded him an altar in the evening dews and damps;

I can read his righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps;

His day is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;

He is sifting out the hearts of men before his judgment seat;

O be swift, my soul, to answer him; be jubilant, my feet!

Our God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,

With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me;

As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,

While our God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.

He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,

He is wisdom to the mighty, he is honor to the brave;

So the world shall be his footstool, and the soul of wrong his slave.

Our God is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!

His truth is marching on.

Al Green Judy

I never thought dreams could happen,

Until one came true for me.

Since I met Judy,

Since I met Judy,

My life has been one sweet melody.

Yeah! Yeah!

I never thought I could welcome….

Two other hearts as I do.

Oh…Since I met Judy,

Since I met Judy,

Well it’s been a real hip thing I’m telling you.

Oh, saying that I want Judy.

Talking about beauty,

She’s got it.

I know she’s got it.

Her sweet little ways,

Mean so much to me.

Oh yeah! Oh yeah!

I’m making mine Judy.

To love her! Got her! Got her! Yeah! Yeah!

Gonna keep her right here with me.

Yeah! Oh yeah!

Now I find it hard to believe, that I’m happy.

All my pains and heartaches are all gone.

So glad I can tell the world:

Since I met Judy,

Since I met Judy,

Well my life has been one sweet song.

I won’t be worried long.

If you think I’m gonna leave her,

Man, you’re wrong.

It’s only Judy.

I’m telling you you’re wrong.

I love Judy.

I’m crazy about that Judy.

Judy, Judy, Judy!

Al Green Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?

In the lane, snow is glistening

A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight

Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away, is the bluebird

Here to stay, is a new bird

He sings a love song, as we go along

Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman

And pretend that he is Parson Brown

He’ll say are you married? We’ll say “No man

But you can do the job when you’re in town.”

Later on, we’ll conspire

As we dream, by the fire

To face unafraid, the plans that we’ve made

Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman

And pretend that he’s a circus clown

We’ll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman

Until the other kids come knock him down

When it’s cold, ain’t it thrilling

When your nose, gets to chilling

We’ll frolic and play, the eskimo way

Walking in a winter wonderland

Walking in a winter wonderland
