I'm gonna' get me some religion, I'm gonna' join the Baptist Church
I'm gonna' get me some religion, I'm gonna' join the Baptist Church
Gonna be a preacher, so I don't have to work
I wish I had a heaven, a heaven of my own
I wish I had a heaven, a heaven of my own
’(?)", a long and happy home
I'm gonna’ preach these blues, I'm gonna' pick my seat and sit down
I'm gonna’ preach these blues, I'm gonna' pick my seat and sit down
Cause when the spirit comes, Lord knows I'm gonna' watch it too
Grabbed on my suitcase, and took off down the road
Grabbed on my suitcase, and took off down the road
I said farewell my church, may the good Lord bless your soul
Bless your soul
Bless your soul
Bless your soul
Bless your soul
