Po' Lazarus

This song is by James Carter & The Prisoners and appears on the movie soundtrack O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000).

Well the high sheriff, he told his deputy
Won't you go out and bring me Lazarus

Well the high sheriff told his deputy
Won't you go out and bring me Lazarus

Bring him dead or alive
Lord, Lord
Bring him dead or alive

Well the deputy, he told the high sheriff
I ain't gonna mess with Lazarus

Well the deputy, he told the high sheriff
Says I ain't gonna mess with Lazarus

Well he's a dangerous man
Lord, Lord
He's a dangerous man

Well then the high sheriff, he found Lazarus
He was hidin' in the chill of a mountain

Well the high sheriff found Lazarus
He was hidin' in the chill of the mountain

With his head hung down
Lord, Lord
With his head hung down

Well then the high sheriff, he told Lazarus
He says Lazarus I come to arrest you

Well the high sheriff told Lazarus
Says Lazarus I come to arrest you

And bring you dead or alive
Lord, Lord
Bring you dead or alive

Well then Lazarus, he told the high sheriff
Says I never been arrested

Well Lazarus told the high sheriff
Says I never been arrested

By no one man
Lord, Lord
By no one man

And then the high sheriff, he shot Lazarus
Well, he shot him mighty big number

Well the high sheriff shot Lazarus
Well he shot him with a mighty big number

With a forty-five
Lord, Lord
With a forty-five

Well then they taken old Lazarus
Yes they laid him on the commissary gallery

Well they taken poor Lazarus
And the laid him on the commissary gallery

He said my wounded side
Lord, Lord
My wounded side
