Jones, George - Swoop Down, Sweet Jesus Lyrics




Well-a want You swoop down sweet Jesus and put a hold on me
The devil’s got me all tied up and he just won’t set me free
I’ve been all junked up in a honky tonk and a bottle misery
So won't You swoop down sweet Jesus and put a hold on me

Well I know what You done for ol’ Daniel when he was down in the lion’s den
And I heard about the time that You split the water and You saved 10,000 men
And I’ve read a lot of stories and I’ve seen a lot of pictures
Of You walking on the deep blue sea
So want You swoop down sweet Jesus and put a hold on me

Well-a want You swoop down sweet Jesus and put a hold on me
The devil’s got me all tied up and he just won’t set me free
I’ve been all junked up in a honky tonk and a bottle misery
So won't You swoop down sweet Jesus and put a hold on me

I’ve been walking alone since mid-night with a bottle and a heavy mind
As I looked up the first thing I saw was a flashing neon sign
Well I read it again and I smiled to myself when it flashed on Jesus saves
The Salvation Army rescued me so I wanna thank you for a brand new day

Well-a want You swoop down sweet Jesus and put a hold on me
The devil’s got me all tied up and he just won’t set me free
I’ve been all junked up in a honky tonk and a bottle misery
So won't You swoop down sweet Jesus and put a hold on me

  1. Connor M. Music & more

    Good song indeed. Fun fact: it was recorded during the "Alone Again" sessions on 6/15/1976. Should of been released as a single right after it was recorded.
