Time To Stop Your Idling

Elizabeth Cotten

Time to stop your idling
Get on your knees and pray
Time to stop your idling
Get on your knees and pray,
Get on your knees and pray,

If you don't like your brother
Don't scandalize his name
Put it in your bosom and take it on to God
And tell it all to God

Used to have some friends
To come along with me
But when I got converted they turned their backs on me
Oh yes, they tured their backs on me.

When I was a sinner
I knew my way so well
But when I come to find out
I was on my way to hell
I was on my way to hell.
