Etta James – On The 7th Day lyrics

I'm gonna tell you, so you'll understand,
About how it all got started, how it all began.
God made the heavens, God made the earth.
Made a man and a woman out of blood, sweat and dirt.
And he looked around the neighbourhood.
And he said to himself: This is good.

God made the rivers, and the mountains with his hands.
God made the wind to blow the shifting sands.
He put the fishes in the deep blue sea.
Filled up the garden with flowers and the trees.
And he looked around the neighbourhood.
And he said to himself: This is Good.

But the devil, he was jealous,
Took the apple in his hand.
The devil tempted woman, and woman tempted man.
God he mourned, and the tears rolled down his face.
It broke his heart to see his children fall from grace.
And on the 7th day, they say God rested, but you know that ain't the truth.
Cause on the 7th day, God made the blues.
God made the blues.

The Blues has been around ever since that day.
Everybody gets the blues, everybody got to pay.
For the wicked things we do, and what we put each other trough.
And on the 7th day, they say God rested, but you know that ain't the truth.
Cause on the 7th day, God made the blues.
Cause on the 7th day, God made the blues.
God made the blues
