"You're Gonna Need Somebody on Your Bond"   

Check out The RooTsters' new album, "Merge"!

The Rev. Blind Willie Johnson's electrifying gospel and ''sacred blues'' songs made a huge impression on me. I still get chills down my spine when I hear his tunes delivered with such fiery passion. This song is a perennial, a valid message for the ages: Who will speak for you when your time comes to wrap it up on this mortal coil?

Listen to a song clip.

You're gonna need somebody on your bond. (2x)
Way after midnight, when Death come a-creepin' in your room
You're gonna need somebody on your bond.
I heard the voice of Jesus callin', singin' of his rest.
"If you're lost in the wilderness, come lay up on my breast!"
You're gonna need somebody on your bond...
When Jesus come to save us, nobody heard his call:
"You can run, but you can't hide, who's gonna have your soul?"
You're gonna need somebody on your bond...
