[Verse 1]

                 G                    C/G
        Why me Lord? What have i ever done?
                        G
        To deserve even one
                               D
        Of the pleasures i've known
                 G                 C/G
        Tell me Lord.What did i ever do
                            G
        That was worth loving you
                 D              G
        Or the kindness you've shown


[Chorus]

          C/G                    G                     D                 G
        Lord help me Jesus,i've wasted it so help me Jesus,i know what i am
          C/G               G                          D                     G
        Now that i know,that i needed you so help me Jesus,my soul's in your hands


[Verse 2]

                G                        C/G
        Try me Lord.If you think there's a way
                        G
        I can't try to repay
                            D
        All i've taken from you
                G                    C/G
        Maybe Lord.I can show someone else
                                 G
        What i've been through myself
               D           G
        On my way back to you


[Chorus]

          C/G                    G                     D                 G
        Lord help me Jesus,i've wasted it so help me Jesus,i know what i am
          C/G               G                          D                     G
        Now that i know,that i needed you so help me Jesus,my soul's in your hands

          C/G                    G                     D                 G
        Lord help me Jesus,i've wasted it so help me Jesus,i know what i am
          C/G               G                          D                     G
        Now that i know,that i needed you so help me Jesus,my soul's in your hands

Here are some lyric corrections. You'll find that the verses make a bit more sense when you put the right lyrics in:
verse 1, line 5:
"...that was worth love from you."
verse 2, line 2:
"that I can repay"
verse 1, line 3:
Johnny Cash version he says "blessings", not "pleasures". Not 100% sure if KK's recording had a different wording or not.

he took this from kris kristofferson. he did word it differently. Johnny Cash did that quite a bit with songs that we would cover. he would change up some of the words while singing
