Sinner Man Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone
Album: The Thomas Crown Affair Soundtrack

Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to?
Oh, sinner man, where you gonna run to all on that day?

Run to the moon, "Moon won't you hide me?"
Run to the sea, "Sea won't you hide me?"
Run to the sun, "Sun won't you hide me all on that day?"

Lord says, "Sinner man, the moon'll be a bleeding."
Lord says, "Sinner man, the sea'll be a sinking."
Lord says, "Sinner man, the sun'll be a freezin' all on that day!"

Run to the Lord, "Lord won't you hide me?"
Run to the Lord, "Lord won't you hide me?"
Run, run, "Lord won't you hide me all on that day?"

Lord says "Sinner man, you should've been a praying."
Lord says "Sinner man, you should've been a praying."
Lord says "Sinner man, you should've been a praying all on that day."

This is certainly not the Lyrics that Nina and Frederick sang in the sixties... and where's the verse about Satan?

anybody knows what´s exactly the meaning of this song?

Means you are never separate from the one you call God, always with you, no hiding.

These verses talk about the second coming of Jesus. There will be signs in the heavens, the moon and the sun. Until that day we all have the opportunity to make the choice to follow Jesus. On the day of His second coming, the choice will be gone. It says in God's Word, the Bible "if today you hear His voice, harden not your heart." For any who have not chosen Him, today is a good day.

For Pete back in 2008- Satan, the Devil is in The Seeker's version.
It's a folk song and was also done by the Weaver's and PP&M in various versions- as happens with many folk songs. Any way, it is always a rousing and fun song to sing and do in "parts". It adapts well and "stylizes" easily.
