Looking For A City

Jerry Lee Lewis

Looking for a City (Track#1) Jerry Lee Lewis (M. Dalton, O. Cooper) Transcriber: Awcantor@aol.com
Spoken: We don't have very much room to work here Ladies and gentlemen but-um, 'never fear Lewis is here'. And we'll do the best we can. Tonight we're gonna do-um, an old song One entitled, Looking for A City Built Above. Hallelujah!
Song Begins:
Here among the shadows Living in a lonely land with strangers We're a band of pilgrims on the move Yes, we're burdened down with sorrows Shunned on every hand But we are looking for a city built above
Oh yes, we're looking for a city Where we'll never die And with all the millions We will never say goodbye Yes, we'll meet our Savior And our loved ones, too O' Come O' Holy Spirit All our hopes renew
In this land of danger We're going here and there We're simply trusting in the blessed Savior's love Oh, truly we gotta find him, neighbors
Jesus is gonna meet us at that happy home An' I'm a-looking for a city built above
Oh yes, I'm looking for a city Where we'll never die And with all the millions We will never say goodbye-i-i Yes, we'll meet our Saviour And our loved ones, too I said, Come O' Holy Spirit All our hope renew

(JLL spoken) Glory to God! Thank you very much, Looking for a City Built Above.
Uh-hm, I tell you what I'd like to do a song for you, ladies and gentlemen They-a, they just released it, it's on Mercury Records. I had them 'em send some down from the plant. And-um, just to make sure That you might wanna, youu might get one. It's-a, it's real early to have it. 'Cause it won't be released until after the first of the year. But-ah they sent us some down if you'd like to buy one after After, um, after (words inaudible speaks away from the microphone) (audience laughter) After-ah, service is over. Ha-ha-ha You're certainly welcome to-a, to purchase one. Ha-ha-ha And-a, if ya do buy one, the money won't go to me. But we would appreciate it. And-a, it'll pay the boys, anyway.
