Notes

Circlulates on Black Mountain Boy tapes as The Hand Of The Lord.

Here are the lyrics used by the Black Mountain Boys;

While I was singing, somebody touched me
While I was singing, somebody touched me
While I was singing, somebody touched me
Must've been the hand of the Lord.

Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Must've been the hand of the Lord.

While I was kneeling, somebody touched me
While I was kneeling, somebody touched me
While I was kneeling, somebody touched me
Must've been the hand of the Lord.

Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Must've been the hand of the Lord.

While I was praying, somebody touched me
While I was praying, somebody touched me
While I was praying, somebody touched me
Must've been the hand of the Lord.

Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Glory, glory, glory, somebody touched me
Must've been the hand of the Lord.
