   “Sinner Man” or “Sinnerman” is an American traditional spiritual song that has been recorded by a number of performers. The song dates to the turn of the 20th century  but most modern recorded versions derive from the 1956 recording by Les Baxter, further changes and additions were codified in 1959 by the folk music group the Weavers. The Weavers’ performance of the song appears on their compilation albums Gospel and Reunion at Carnegie Hall Part 2. Sinnerman” (spelled as one word) is one of Nina Simone’s most famous songs and she recorded her definitive 10-minute-plus version on her 1965 album Pastel Blues. Simone learned the lyrics of this song in her childhood when it was used at revival meetings by her mother, a Methodist minister, to help people confess their sins. In the early days of her career during the early sixties, when she was heavily involved in the Greenwich Village scene, Simone often used the long piece to end her live performances. An earlier version of the song exists, recorded live at The Village Gate, but was never used on the 1962 Colpix album Nina at the Village Gate.

Versions of “Sinnerman” were featured in 1999’s The Thomas Crown Affair, in the 2004 film Cellular by David R. Ellis, and in three 2006 films: Michael Mann’s Miami Vice, The Golden Door by Emanuele Crialese, in the closing scene of David Lynch’s Inland Empire, and during a chase scene midway through the 2007 documentary Sharkwater by Rob Stewart. “Sinner Man” has also been recorded as a reggae interpretation several times by the Wailers.

I run to the sea, it was bleedin’
I run to the sea, it was bleedin’
All on that day
So I run to the river, it was boilin’
I run to the sea, it was boilin’
I run to the sea, it was boilin’
All on that day
So I run to the Lord, please hide me Lord
Don’t you see me prayin’?
Don’t you see me down here prayin’?
But the Lord said, go to the devil
The Lord said, go to the devil
He said, go to the devil
All on that day
So I ran to the devil, he was waitin’
I ran to the devil, he was waitin’
Ran to the devil, he was waitin’
