Lyrics to Jezebel Golden Gate Quartet

Lyrics to “Jezebel (Golden Gate Quartet)” Jezebel (Golden Gate Quartet)

God’s finally got tired of her wicked ways
The angels in heaven done numbered the days
Of the evil deeds God’s done got tired.
You got to go to judgment stand the trial.
You got to go to judgment stand the trial.

Well stop, great God, stop there and listen,
listen to the story 'bout Jezebel.

Her sins were so wicked Jehovah got angry,
her soul went leapin' and jumpin' into Hell.
Way back yonder in the olden days,
John told Jezebel to bar her ways,
said her evil deeds had ruined the land
and repent for the kingdom of God was at hand.

She got mad at John
'cause he told her 'bout the gospel,
told her servants to boil him in oil.
Well they tell me
God looked from the windows of the heavens,
spoke one word and the oil wouldn't boil.

He raised his hands, creation trembled,
stamped his feet and time stood still,
raised his voice, looked down and thundered
“John! Go do my will.”


Well the tell me John moved through the power of gospel
Told Jezebel the time was nigh
On the book of life her days was ended
Her time ran out and she had to die.

They tell me God walked his footsteps thundered
He moved his head His eyes flashed fire
Clapped his hands and death come a-jumpin’
Jehovah was angry somebody had to die

Then death come knockin’ on Jezebel’s door
and said “Come on mamma ain’t you ready to go”?
Of evil deeds God’s done got tired,
You got to go to judgment stand the trial

Then death came a-leapin’ she jumped into hell
great God Almighty I heard them tell.
Nine days she lay in Jerusalem’s streets
Her flesh was too filthy for the dogs to eat.
