Johnny Cash — If I Give My Soul lyrics

(Shaver Billy Joe)

Down a dangerous road,i have come to where i'm standing
With a heavy heart,and my hat clutched in my hand
Such a foolish fool,God ain't known no greater sinner
I have come in search of Jesus,hoping he will understand

I had a woman once,she was kind and she was gentle
Had a child by me,who grew up to be a man
I had a steady job,til i started into drinking
And i started making music that went with the devil's band
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/johnny-cash-if-i-give-my-soul-lyrics.html ]
Oh the years flew by like a mighty rush of eagles
My dreams and plans were all scattered in the wind
It's a lonesome life,when you lose the ones you live for
If i make my peace with Jesus will they take me back again

If i give my soul,will he cleanse these clothes i'm wearin'
If i give my soul,will he put new boots on my feet
If i bow my head and beg God for his forgiveness
Will he breathe new breath inside me and give back my dignity

If i give my soul,will he stop my hands from shaking
If i give my soul,will my son love me again
If i give my soul,and she knows i really mean it
If i give my soul to Jesus will she take me back again

If i give my soul to Jesus will she take me back again
