Oh lord, I have not seen my brother
I've been tending my field of grain
oh lord, did you like
the beautiful sight
of my fields all a burstin' into flames

Oh lord, I have not seen my brother
he must be out tending his flock
if you have not seen
his sheep flayed and burning
then I guess lord that he must have forgot

Oh lord, I have not seen my brother
why must you keep pestering me?
I've been busy at work
sitting here in the dirt
and I'm trying my best, lord, to please

Oh lord, I have not seen my brother
and lord if you really must know
the blood on my hands
comes from digging a path
through the weeds to play seeds come tomorrow

Oh lord I have not seen my brother
and I don't expect I'll see him soon
for I am not his keeper, lord
to know where he might wander
lord, he's probably lost because he's a fool

Oh lord, I admit I'm a liar
I know where dear Abel has been
he went off with that snake
to the firey lake
and he's never coming back here again
