Beck – John The Revelator lyrics

Tell me who's that writin' / John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin' / John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin' / John the Revelator
Wrote the book of the seven seals

Well, God walked out in the cool of the day
Called Adam by his name
But Adam wouldn't answer
'Cause he was nekkid and ashamed

You know Christ had twelve apostles
Three he led away
He said Watch me while I walk
While I go yonder and pray

Well, Christ rose on Easter morning
Mary and Martha came down to see
He said Go tell my disciples
To meet me in Galilee
