written and performed by Billy Joe Shaver.



Verse 1:
      D                               G                  D 
	Down a dangerous road,i have come to where i'm standing
                                                      A
	With a heavy heart,and my hat clutched in my hand
                        D               G                D   
	Such a foolish fool,God ain't known no greater sinner
                 G                 D           A             D         
	I have come in search of Jesus,hoping he will understand


Verse 2:
      D                             G                D  
	I had a woman once,she was kind and she was gentle
                                               A
	Had a child by me,who grew up to be a man
                        D          G             D  
	I had a steady job,til i started into drinking
                G              D              A                D   
	And i started making music that went with the devil's band


Verse 3:
      D                    G                        D     
	Oh the years flew by like a mighty rush of eagles
                        G                              A
	My dreams and plans were all scattered in the wind
                         D             G                 D
	It's a lonesome life,when you lose the ones you live for
              G                   D              A             D
	If i make my peace with Jesus will they take me back again


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


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


Chorus bis.

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