Song Description

A death-bed plea for clemency.

Story Behind the Song

I wanted to do some of my Tuvan-style throat singing on our second album - folks love it when I do it live - and it seemed appropriate to select a religious theme. The chorus came from one of the most touching public prayers I've ever heard.

Lyrics

A man is born a slave, O Lord, or a man is born a chief,
I'll always be a beggar, Lord, and I'll always be a thief.
Before I grow dark and old and lose my eyes to see,
I'll pay back all the things I owe if you remember me.

Lord, Lord, will you remember me?

Lord, I'll remember your flesh when you give me bread.
Lord, I'll remember your blood when you give me wine instead.
I know you gotta be hotter'n hell hangin' up on that tree,
Now if I give you a sip of wine, will you remember me?

Lord, Lord, will you remember me?

I know I'm soon to slumber, Lord, for all eternity;
If I wake up tomorrow, Lord, then let me wake up free.
I have crossed the river twice to see what I must be.
After I have come this far, will you remember me?

Lord, Lord, will you remember me?
