Bob Dylan - Cover Down, Break Through Lyrics




You heard about Pharaoh's army
Tramplin' through the mud
You heard about the Hebrew children
Redeemed by blood
Same spirit dwellin' in you
That raised Christ from the dead
You can quicken your mortal body
Then let it run to your head

You've got to cover down, cover down, break through
Cover down (cover down, break through)

May need protection
By the armour of the Lord
The sword of God is sharper
Than any double sided sword
(He's the hammer of salvation)
(The blade of righteousness)
(Genesis to revelation)
(Repent and confess)

Cover down, cover down, break through
Cover down (cover down, break through)

Well, you wake up early in the mornin'
Turnin' from a-side to side
Somethin' givin' you a warning
You can run but you can't hide
Demands are laid upon you
And burdens a-you can't bear
Sins you can't even remember
are waiting to meet you there

You've got to cover down, cover down, break through
Cover down, cover down, break through

You've got an image of yourself
You've built by yourself alone
But it will come a-tumblin' down
Just like the walls are made of stone
You will be separated
From everything you seem to be
You think you'll be liberated
Yeah, but the grave won't set you free

You've got to cover down, cover down, break through
Cover down, cover down, break through

(Cover down, cover down, break through)
(Cover down, cover down, break through)

(Cover down, break through)
(Cover down, oh Lord, cover down, break through)

Bob Dylan Cover Down, Break Through Comments
  1. Rick Jackson

    Great song but get the title and lyrics right. It's Pray Through not Breakthrough.

    Robert Burton

    I misheard the lyrics to say "cover down/breakthrough" and that "mishearing" spoke to me a profound truth that indeed there is a time to "coverdown" and a time to "breakthrough". Not realizing that I had actually misheard these lyrics, I put time and effort into relaying that message in the form of this video. It was only a couple months ago that I realized my "mistake", when Jesper Fynbo (see his comment below in this thread) politely and respectfully pointed it out. That being said, I am not going to change or delete this video because: A) my efforts were in good intent, B)because this is the message that the song actually "spoke" to me, and C)because I believe that divine intervention sometimes comes in the form of what we humans often term "accident" and "error". All that being said thank you for your insight which may potentially open a door to the message that Bob Dylan intended to convey for those whom that message is helpful.

    I think it is: "Cover Down, Pray Through". But thanks for a wonderful song! :-)
