John Hurt: Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor (Remix)




[Mississippi John Hurt]Make Me a Pallet on Your Floor
video 
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down
Make me a pallet down, soft and low
Make me a pallet on your floor
Oh make me down
Make me down
Make me a pallet down, soft and low
Make me a pallet on your floor
Up the country
Up the country by the cold sleet and snow
I'm going up the country
By the cold sleet and slow

I'm going up the country by the cold sleet and snow
No telling how much further I may go
Oh make me down
Make me down
Make me a pallet down, soft and low
Make me a pallet on your floor

[Michael Green Remix]
Lord, build me  up a pallet on your floor
I stand at heaven's gate but angels bar the door
Let your word usher me in
Oh Good Lord be my friend 
Can I please come inside, I won't sin no more
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Build me up a pallet high, soft and low
Make me to lie down high upon your floor

Make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me down a pallet on your floor
That ole devil tricked me down below
He wanted to make my bed, forever down below
To burn forever with the spark and tow
But to his surprise, you pulled the wool from my eyes

Make me down a pallet on your floor
Jesus make me down a place to dwell with you
I know your grace will quickly see me through
So I may forever rest and dwell with you
Jesus make me down a place on high with you
Jesus make me down
Jesus make me down a place to dwell with you
Satan wanted me in Hell without you
Lord, that ole devil tried to treat me just like he treated you
Like Peter you warned me of his desire, to sort and sift me too
But I leaned on you to help see and get me through
Jesus make me down a place to dwell with you
Make me down a pallet on your floor
Let's keep this quiet, don't let that ole devil know
Ain't no telling what he'd do if he knew
Make me down a pallet on your floor
I don't need no mansion I'll lay in peace at heaven's door
But to his surprise you told my soul to rise
Jesus make me down a place in your high-rise
Make me a pallet high, soft and low
Make me a pallet on your floor
