The Very Best of Peter, Paul and Mary

Go Tell It On The Mountain

by Peter, Paul & Mary

on The Very Best of Peter, Paul and Mary (2005), This Land Is Your Land (1965)

Who's that yonder dressed in white,
Let my people go.
Must be the people of the Israelites
Let my people go.

CHORUS:
Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hill and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
Our Jesus Christ is born.

(CHORUS)

Who's that yonder dressed in red,
Let my people go.
Must be the people that Moses led
Let my people go.

(CHORUS)

Who's that yonder dressed in black
Let my people go.
Must be the hypocrites turning back
Let my people go.

(CHORUS)

On Go Tell It On The Mountain by Peter, Paul & Mary

The song I am looking for has some lyrics of Go tell it on the mountain for example: ‘Who’s that yonder dressed in white,Must be the people of the Israelites’.
The song contains the lyrics ,there’s Hate in the water, Children. It has a blues or soul feel and Rhythm. I acquired a CD from my Mother in law when she passed last year. If I remember right , it was a copied CD and I can’t find the song or any of the other songs on the CD anywhere so I am thinking it was maybe something ‘local’? I would love to be able to hear them again.
