    today is still joe strummers birthday 

    this is one of my favorite gospel songs.

    “Sound of the Sinners”
    (Strummer/Jones/Simonon/Headon)
    from Sandinista!

    As the floods of God
    Wash away Sin City
    They say it was written
    In the page of the Lord

    But I was looking
    For that great jazz note
    That destroyed
    The walls of Jericho

    The winds of fear
    Whip away the sickness
    The message on the tablets
    Was Valium

    The planets form
    That golden cross, Lord
    I’ll see You on
    The holy crossroads

    After all this time
    To believe in Jesus
    After all these drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, no, no

    The tribal wars
    Are burning up the homeland
    The fuel of evil
    Is raining from the sky

    The sea of lava
    Flowing down the mountain
    The time will sleep
    Us sinners by, by, by

    After all these years
    To believe in Jesus
    After all these drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, no, no

    Take one now
    Go, [Incomprehensible] go
    To Las Vegas
    [Incomprehensible]

    Give me success
    [Incomprehensible]
    To roll
    Holy rollers roll

    After all this time
    To believe in Jesus
    After all these drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, no, no

    After all those years
    To believe in Jesus
    After all those drugs
    I thought I was Him

    After all my lying and crying
    And the suffering
    I ain’t good enough
    And I ain’t clean enough
    To be Him, take one now
    Holy rollers roll

    After all this time
    To believe in Jesus
    After all those drugs
    I thought I was Him
