Blues Brothers – 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 seas

Who's that writin' (John the Revelator)
Who's that writin' (John the Revelator)
Who's that writin' (John the Revelator)
He wrote the book of the seven seas

(O yes, 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 seas

Look, God walked down the hill one day
Called Adam by his name
And Adam wouldn't answer
'Cause he was naked and ashamed

(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 seas

You know Christ (Christ) had twelve apostels (spirit willing)
Three he layed away (O but the flesh was weak)
He said watch me while I walked (Ooh)
While I go out and pray

Listen

Well Christ rose on Easter morning (Hallelujah)
Mary mother came down to see (the resurrection)
He said Go and tell my disciples (Ooh)
To meet me in Galilee

Yes

Who's that writin' (John the Revelator)
Who's that writin' (John the Revelator)
Who's that writin' (John the Revelator)
Wrote the book of the seven seas
He wrote the book of the seven seas (Ooh)
Yeah, yes he did

Tell me why I'm shouting (John the Revelator)
Tell me why I'm shouting (John the Revelator)
Tell me why I'm shouting (John the Revelator)
(Wrote the book of the seven seas)

Tell me what I'm shouting (John the Revelator)
Tell me what I'm shouting (John the Revelator)
Tell me what I'm shouting (John the Revelator)
(Wrote the book of the seven seas)

(The revelation of Jesus) You know I thought I was a policeman
(The revelation of Jesus) An officer of the law
(The revelation of Jesus) But then I had a revelation
(The revelation of Jesus) Because of what I saw
(The revelation of Jesus) The air was always so gloomy
(The revelation of Jesus) Every day was dull and grey
(The revelation of Jesus) But now I see very clearly
(The revelation of Jesus) O, o, o, o happy day
(The revelation of Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus) My God my God
(Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus) Jesus
(The revelation of Jesus) My my my my my my
(Jesus) My my my my
(Jesus) My my my my my my my my
(Jesus) My my my my my God
(Jesus) Yeah yeah
(Jesus) My my my my my God
(The revelation of Jesus) O...
John the Revelator
