************ WHY ME LORD *************

written and performed by Kris Kristofferson.

The way i think he plays at the guitar:

           G                                    C/G
  E --3---------------------------3---------------------------3-----------|
  A ----------------2---------------------------3-------------------------|
  D ------0-----0-------0-----0-------0-----0-------2-----2-------2-----2-| ...
  G ---------0-------------0-------------0-------------0-------------0----|
  B ---------0-------------0-------------0-------------1-------------1----|
  e ----------------------------------------------------------------------|


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 (2 times).

And:
          D/                      G
	Jesus,my soul's in your hands.


Thanks to David M. Potter for the lyrics.

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
