Etta James On the 7th Day Lyrics

sponsored links
Now I'm gonna tell you, so you'll understand
How it all got started, how it all begin
God made the heavens, God made the earth
Made a man and a woman out of blood, sweat and dirt
And He looked around the neighborhood
And He said to His self, "This is good"

God made the rivers and the mountains with his hands
God made the wind to blow the shifting sands
He put the fishes in the, in the deep blue sea
Filled up the garden with flowers and the trees
And God looked around the neighborhood
And He said to His self, "This is good"

But the devil he was jealous, took the apple in his hand
The devil tempted woman and woman tempted man
God, He mourned and the tears rolled down His face
It broke His heart to see His children fall from grace
And on the seventh day they say, "God rested"
But you know that ain't the truth

Cause on the seventh day, God made the blue
Cause on the seventh day, God made the blue

The blues is been around ever since that day
Everybody gets the blues, everybody got to pay
For the wicked things we do
And what we put each other through
And on the seventh day they say, "God rested"
But you know that ain't the truth

Cause on the seventh day, God made the blue
Cause on the seventh day, God made the blue
God made the blue
