Nine Pound Hammer – 800 Miles lyrics

800 miles to the Georgia crossroads
I'm going to see my baby there
If I don't look back the devil can't catch me
So baby, baby, I'll meet you there

Came upon
(Came upon)
The river of darkness
(River of darkness)
Couldn't help
But put my foot in

Then I jumped back
(Then I jumped back)
Jesus did catch me
(Jesus did catch me)
He picked me up
I was saved again

800 miles to the Georgia crossroads
I'm going to see my baby there
If I don't look back the devil can't catch me
So baby, baby, I'll meet you there

Came upon
(Came upon)
The river of darkness
(River of darkness)
Couldn't help
But put my foot in

Then I jumped back
(Then I jumped back)
Jesus did catch me
(Jesus did catch me)
He picked me up
I was saved again

My Mama told me
(Mama told me)
When I was a baby
(I was a baby)
The Devil will haunt
(Devil will haunt)
A hungry man

Through the bad times
(Through the bad times)
Through the heartache
(Through the heartache)
Stay one step ahead
(One step ahead)
If you can

800 miles to the Georgia crossroads
I'm going to see my baby there
If I don't look back the devil can't catch me
So baby, baby, I'll meet you there

Came upon
(Came upon)
The river of darkness
(River of darkness)
Couldn't help
But put my foot in

Then I jumped back
(Then I jumped back)
Jesus did catch me
(Jesus did catch me)
He picked me up
I was saved again
