Jonah and the Whale Lyrics

Artist: Tim O'Brien
Album: Rock in My Shoe

God sent Jonah down to Ninevah land
To preach the gospel to the wicked men
And to repent his wicked ways
I'm gonna overthrow the city in forty days”

Chorus
God moved in the wind storm, he rose in the wind storm
He troubled everybody in mind

So Jonah went down to the sea shore
He made up his mind which way to go
He got himself a ship and he paid his fare
But God got angry with Jonah down there

Chorus

God saw the ship and he came in time
The captain of the ship had a trouble in mind
And then he went into the deep
Where he saw old Jonah there fast asleep
He said “Hey stranger tell me your name”
“My name is Jonah and I came from the king
And all this trouble's on account of me
Why don't you throw me over board and let the ship sail free”

Chorus

So they threw old Jonah overboard
A whale came up and he swallowed him whole
He took him on over to Ninevah land
Where he threw up Jonah on a bar of sand

Chorus

Repeat first verse
