Double Shot (Sweet Honey in the Rock)


Stephen Hatfield (b. 1956)

 

Tell me what chu want
(Sweet honey in the rock)
Come on an' tell me what chu want
(Sweet honey in the rock)
Tell me, what chu gonna need?
(Sweet honey in the rock)
Tell me how you gonna plead now.
(Sweet honey in the rock)
How will you know?
(Because it tastes like-uh honey.)
Honey in the rock.

Now when Moses struck the burnin' desert,
what chu think he got?
(Sweet honey in the rock)
It was a holy, it was healin'
an' when the midnight devils come stealin'
you need a double shot.
(Sweet honey in the rock)

When the soldier struck the dyin' Jesus,
what chu think he got?
(Sweet honey in the rock)

Come the Master strikin' at your hard heart,
show him what chu got.
(Sweet honey in the rock)
