Lyrics:

 ^ Lift me, won't you lift me above the old routine, make it nice, play it clean, Jazzman

When the Jazzman's testifyin', a faithless man believes
He can sing you into paradise, or bring you to your knees
It's a gospel kind of feelin', a touch of Georgia slide
A song of pure revival, and a style that's sanctified

Jazzman, take my blues away, make my pain the same as yours
With every change you play, Jazzman, oh, Jazzman

When the Jazzman's signifyin', and the band is windin' low
It's the late night side of morning, in the darkness of his soul
He can fill a room with sadness, as he fills his horn with tears
He can cry like a fallen angel, when risin' time is near

Jazzman, take my blues away, make my pain the same as yours
With every change you play
Oh, lift me, won't you lift me with every turnaround
Play it sweetly, take me down, oh, Jazzman
