Wish I Had Answered

This song is by Mavis Staples and appears on the EP Your Good Fortune (2015).

Come and follow me, you know the master said
Don't wait till tomorrow, oh you may be dead
I was you and I wanted to play
Said I'd wait just one more day

Don't you know I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Said I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Oh I wish
(Wish I had answered)
When he called

And one morning I felt the pain
Felt like death done sung my name
Started to tremble deep down inside yeah
And I felt the fear of the swelling tide

Don't you know I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Said I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Oh I wish
(Wish I had answered)
When he called

So many doctors stood around my bed
One walked away, oh he shook his head
Said "your fever 102"
Said "I don't believe her, I can pull you through"

Don't you know I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Said I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Oh I wish
(Wish I had answered)
When he called

Then the fever rose to 103
The doctor walked around and took a look at me
Oh it rose to 104
He said "Oh death is knocking at your door"
Oh it rose to 105
Said "I don't believe that you will survive"

Lord I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Oh Lord I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Oh Lord I wish
(Wish I had answered)
When he called
(Wish I had answered)
Don't you know I wished
(Wish I had answered)
Oh Lord I wish
(Wish I had answered)
Oh Lord I wish
(Wish I had answered)
When he called
