Jesse Winchester - Pharoah’s Army lyrics
Pharaoh had an army, his horses shook the ground
But mighty as that army was, to a man they drowned
Probably the old pharaoh, probably got away
And lived to tell his story and fight another day.
Lo the Hebrew children the pharaoh took for slaves
And used them and abused them as one will do as slaves
But thank God the poor children, thank God got away
And lived to tell their story and fight another day
And lived to tell their story and fight another day.
