Run, Come See Jerusalem
Composer: Blake Alphonso Higgs (Blind Blake) / Traditional

Run, Come See Jerusalem was performed by Robert Hunter in the 1980's.

Credited to Blind Blake (the Bahamian goombay and calypso singer not the blues singer/guitarist) on many recordings but his version is possibly based on an earlier song. On some recordings the title is just Run Com See.
