lyrics

I want to ask a question, please answer if you can
is there anybody's children can tell me, tell me
What is the soul of a man?

I heard some people talkin, I just came up in time
They was teachin the lawyers and the doctors,
that a man ain't nothin but his mind

Won't somebody tell me, answer if you can
I want somebody to tell me, tell me now, what is the soul of a man

I've travelled distant countries, travelled to the furthest land
I couldn't find nobody could tell me, tell me
nothin 'bout the soul of a man

But I read the Bible often, and I try to read it right
so far as I can understand,
it ain't nothin but a burnin light

Won't somebody tell me, please answer if you can
I want somebody to tell me, tell me now, what is the soul of a man?

When Jesus taught in the temple, the people all stood amazed
he was teachin the lawyers and the doctors
how to raise a man up from the grave

Won't somebody tell me, answer if you can
I want somebody to tell me, tell me now, what is the soul of a man?
