Transcription

Transcription from audio snippet:
Lee Bell Johnson: I Found The Answer.

Bob Friedman: How's it go?

LBJ: (sings) I found the answer
I like to pray
With faith to guide me
Lord knows I found a way
You know the sun is shining
comin' down on me each day
Lord I found the answer
and I like to pray
Said I found the answer
Oh I like to pray
And with faith to guide me
Lord knows I found a way
You know the sun is shining
comin' down on me each day
Lord then I found the answer
And I like to pray
