Dust on the Bible

Cat. #1001 (MFH #169) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on October 7, 1969

I went to a home one day
See some friends of mine
Of all th books an' magizines
Not a Bible could I find
I ask them for th Bible
When they brought it was a shame
Th dust that cover over h'it
My fingerprint was plain

Dust on th Bible
Dust on th Holy word
Th words of th prophet
And th sayin' of our Lord
With all th books an' magizines
There's none salvation holds
Get th dust off th Bible
Redeem your poor soul

You can read your books an' magizines
Read of love an' tragic things
An' not a word of scripture
Not a word do you know
It is th very truth
An' h'its good for your soul
Get th dust off th Bible
An' redeem your poor soul
