Lyrics:

I've got trials and tribulations
I've been 'buked and I've been scorned
I'm hoping soon my trials will be over
And I want...

Somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
To lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)

Lord, I want somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
To lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)
Lord, I want somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
To lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)
Oh, when this life (somewhere to lay my head)
Is all over (somewhere to lay my head)
Lord, and my work (somewhere to lay my head)
On earth is done (somewhere to lay my head)
Oh Lord, I want somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
To lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)
Oh Lord, I want somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
To lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)

Chorus:
Well, I want somewhere, somewhere
Lord, I want somewhere
Lord (hallelujah), oh Lord (hallelujah)
Lord (hallelujah), oh Lord (hallelujah)
I, oh, I, oh, I oh, I oh, I oh, I oh, I oh, I oh want (hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
Somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
To lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)

Job's wife (somewhere to lay my head)
She came running to him (somewhere to lay my head)
She had the devil (somewhere to lay my head)
In her eyes (somewhere to lay my head)
Now, she said Job (somewhere to lay my head)
"Why you been sick so long? (somewhere to lay my head)
Why don't you curse (somewhere to lay my head)
Your God and die" (somewhere to lay my head)
Oh, Job looked at the woman (somewhere to lay my head)
And into the sky (somewhere to lay my head)
Said, "woman you sound foolish, (somewhere to lay my head)
You don't sound like my wife" (somewhere to lay my head)

Repeat Chorus

Trials are dark (somewhere to lay my head)
On every hand (somewhere to lay my head)
Lord, and we cannot (somewhere to lay my head)
We cannot understand (somewhere to lay my head)
All the ways that (somewhere to lay my head)
My God will lead us (somewhere to lay my head)
Into His blessed (somewhere to lay my head)
Promised land (somewhere to lay my head)
Oh Lord, I want somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
To lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)
When I get you I want somewhere (somewhere to lay my head)
I'm wanna lay my head (somewhere to lay my head)

Well, I want somewhere, somewhere
Lord, I want somewhere
Lord (hallelujah), oh Lord (hallelujah)
Lord (hallelujah), oh Lord (hallelujah)
I said amazing grace, how sweet the sound (hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
I once was lost, but now I'm found (hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
Because he saved a wretch, a wretch like me (hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
I once was blind, but now I see (hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
I'm singing Lord, oh Lord (hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)
I, oh, I, oh, I oh, I oh, I oh, I oh, I oh, I oh (hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah)

Somewhere to lay my head
Somewhere to lay my head (I want somewhere to lay my head)
