Standing In The Need Of Prayer

Standing In The Need Of Prayer

Lyrics: Traditional
Music: Traditional

Played by Jerry Garcia with the Wildwood Boys in February 1963. Thanks to Matt Schofield for the lyrics.

Not my brother, not my sister, but it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
Not my brother, not my sister, but it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer

Not the preacher, not the sinner, but it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
Not the preacher, not the sinner, but it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer

Not my mother, not my father, but it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
Not my mother, not my father, but it’s me oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer

It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
It’s me, it’s me, it’s me, oh Lord
Standing in the need of prayer
