Capo 3rd fret

Am
Lord I can't feed the baby, mama's sick and in bed
Am
I've got a world full of worry running wild in my head
Dm
I spent all my money just to make ends meet
                                    Am
I'm begging Lord won't you send me relief
E                                            Dm                   Am   E
There ain't nobody in this world who'd bet a dime on anybody like me

Am
So I went down to the river of insufferable sins
Am
Lord I tried but the water wouldn't let me come in
Dm
Too many lives have been broken
                              Am
There's too much blood on my hands
E                                          Dm                    Am   E
Ain't no water in this world could turn me back into an innocent man

Am
So I made up my mind to find that palace of fire
Am
Surely the Lord's fallen angel understands my desire
Dm
He's been defiled and defeated still he never gives in
                                     Am
I know he'll help me on my feet once again
E                                           Dm                             Am  E
Ain't no soul in this whole world but Satan understand the state that I'm in

Am
But I went down to the fires of insufferable sin
Am
Lord I tried but the devil wouldn't let me come in
Dm
Unholy trust has been broken
                               Am
He don't know on which side I stand
E                                               Dm                     Am   E
There ain't no room among the damned for such a broken and a penitent man

(Half time)
Am
And then my good woman rises from her sickness in bed
Am
Puts her hands on my thighs and plants a kiss on my head
Dm
Says if the water won't have ya, if the devil's too blind
                                       Am
I know that truly you were meant to be mine
E                                              Dm                         Am   E
And then she takes me by the hand and shows me how to leave my worries behind

Am
I went down to the river of insufferable sins
Am
Lord I tried but the water wouldn't let me come in
Dm
Too many lives have been broken
                              Am
There's too much blood on my hands
E                                               Dm                        Am       E
Only one soul in this whole world would have me just the goddamned way that I am
