Hallelujah I've Just Been Moved

I have just been moved.
Was it because of God or
Was it your daughter?

There's more laughing than lyrics as Bob Dylan and the Band go for a rowdy gospel turn in this song from the Basement Tapes sessions of 1967. The song mostly sticks to the straight-and-narrow idea of being born again, but there's a sly reference to a daughter buried in the improvised singing that gave me the direction for this haiku.
