291. He Never Said a Mumbalin' Word

1 They crucified my Lord,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word;
they crucified my Lord,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word,
not a word, not a word, not a word.

2 They nailed him to a tree,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word;
they nailed him to a tree,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word,
not a word, not a word, not a word.

3 They pierced him in the side,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word;
they pierced him in the side,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word,
not a word, not a word, not a word.

4 His blood came trickling down,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word;
his blood came trickling down,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word,
not a word, not a word, not a word.

5 He hung his head and died,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word;
he hung his head and died,
and he never said a mumbalin’ word,
not a word, not a word, not a word.
