Full Text

Refrain:
There's no hiding place down here,
There's no hiding place down here.

1 Went to the rocks for to hide my face,
Rocks cried out, "No hiding place,"
There's no hiding place down here. [Refrain]

2 Boatman, boatman, row one side
Can't get to heav'n 'gainst wind and tide.
There's no hiding place down here. [Refrain]

3 Sinner man, sinner man, better repent
God's going to call you to judgment.
There's no hiding place down here. [Refrain]

Folk Songs of the American Negro (No. 1), 1907
