I've been tryin' to go to church
I've been tryin' to do better
But me and Saturday night we always wake up together
I know what I oughta be doin', but I keep on losin' track
I try to stay outta trouble, but the devil's draggin' me right back

And I know what I should be puttin' in the offering plate
But I doubled down in Biloxi on a couple of eights
I kept hopin' and a-prayin' but the dealer kept a-sayin' bust
See the chips were goin' down while the sun was comin' up

Amen, hallelujah
I keep on sayin' "Lord I'm gonna get to ya"

I've been tryin' to go to church
I've been tryin' to do better
But my friends are at the river and it's real pretty weather
Layin' on the sandbar thinkin', maybe I can make it Wednesday night
Then here comes that husband stealin' heifer and I
Reckon I'm gonna have to fight

Amen, hallelujah
I keep on a sayin', "Lord I'm gonna get to ya"

I've been tryin' to go to church
I've been tryin' to do better
But me and Saturday night we always wake up together
I know what I oughta be doin', but I keep on losin' track
I try to stay outta trouble, but the devil's draggin' me right back

Lord help me
