Jesus Met the Woman at the Well

This song is by Dave Van Ronk and appears on the live album St. James Infirmary (1982).

Jesus met the woman at the well, at the well,
Jesus met the woman at the well, at the well,
Jesus met the woman at the well, at the well,
An' he told her ev'rything she's ever done.
(New start in different key)
Jesus met the woman at the well, at the well,
Yes, Jesus met the woman at the well, at the well,
An' she told him ev'rything she's ever done.

She said, "Woman..."
He said, "Woman, tell me, where is your husband?"
He said, "Woman..."
He said, "Woman, tell me, where is your husband?"
And the woman said to Jesus, "I have none."

"Oh, woman, oh, woman,
You have three husbands.
Woman, woman, you have three husbands,
An' the one that you have is not your own."

"Oh, this man...," she said, "This man..."
She said, "This man is a prophet.
This man, this man, this man, he's a prophet,
'Cause he told me ev'rything I ever done."
