Lyrics

It was a time when I went blind, it was a time when I went blind
Was the darkest day that I ever saw, was the time when I went blind
Lord, I cried the whole night long, Lord I cried the whole night long
Cryin' «Oh, Lord won’t ya tell me how long am I to be blind always?»
Lord I wished I could see again, I wished I could see again
If I could see how happy I would be, I wished I could see again
Lord there nobody knows like me, that the trouble I do see
I’m away in the dark got ta feel my way, Lord there nobody cares for me
Lord it’s hard I have to be blind, Lord it’s hard I have to be blind
I’m away in the dark and I have to be led, Lord it’s hard I have to be blind
Ah there’s nobody knows like me, Lord there nobody knows like me
Since I lost my sight I lost my friends, now there’s nobody’s a friend to me
My friends turned they back on me, my friend turned their back on me
‘Cos away in the dark and I cannot see, yeh they turned their back on me
Lord there nobody cares for me, nah there nobody cares for me
‘Cos away in the dark and I cannot see, now there nobody cares for me
Lord my way is seem so hard, Lord I’m blind I cannot see
Said I’m away in the dark got ta feel my way, Lord my way it seem so hard
It was the time when I went blind, it was the time when I went blind
Was a dreadful day that I ever see, was the time when I went blind
Lord there nobody knows like me, at the trouble I do see
(spoken)
Y’all oughta realize that ya got the good sight, you ought ta know that it’s a
good thing to have
You can see! It’s the truth, you can see, I mean you can see, you can see
everything coming to you!
It was the time when I went blind
Lord I wish I could See — From Blues to Gospel
It was a time when I went blind, it was a time when I went blind
It was the darkest day that I ever saw, was the time when I went blind
Lord I wished I could see again, Lord I wished I could see again
If I could see how happy I would be, I wished I could see again
Lord there nobody knows like me, that the trouble I do see
Since I lost my sight and I could not see, nobody cares for me
Now there’s nobody cares for me, now there nobody cares for me
Cos I lost my sight and I cannot see, nobody cares for me
It was the time when I went blind, it was the time when I went blind
It was the darkest day that I ever saw it was the time…
It’s so hard I have to be blind, it’s so hard I have to be blind
An' when I had my sight I had a lotta friends, they turned their back on me
Now they turned their back on me, ah they turned their back on me
Since I lost my sight I lost my friends, nobody’s a friend to me
Lord I wished I could see again, Lord I wished I could see again
Well Im out in the dark and I have to feel my way, Lord I wished I could see
again
