Brenda Lee – Saved lyrics

(Jerry Styner - Porter Jordan)

I used to smoke, I used to drink
I used to smoke, and drink
And dance the bugaloo
I used to smoke and drink
Smoke and drink and dance the bugaloo, yes I did
But now I'm standin' on these corners
Prayin' for me and you, yes I am

(That's why) I'm saved, I'm saved
People let me tell you 'bout kingdom come
I'm saved, (I said) I'm saved
How can I preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul sayin' army
Beatin' on my big bass drum, yes I am

I used to cuss and I used to fuss
I used to cuss, fuss and boogie all night long
I used to cuss and fuss
Cuss and fuss and boogie all night long
You know I did
But now I'm standin' on this corner
I know right from wrong, yes I did

(That's why) I'm saved, I'm saved
People let me tell you 'bout kingdom come
I'm saved, (I said) I'm saved
How can I preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul sayin' army
Beatin' on my big bass drum, yes I am

I used to lie and I used to cheat
I used to lie and cheat and step on people's feet
I used to lie and cheat
Lie and cheat and step on people's feet
You know that I did
But now I'm steppin' on to glory
Salvation is my best, yes it is, because

(That's why) I'm saved, I'm saved
People let me tell you 'bout kingdom come
I'm saved, (I said) I'm saved
How can I preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul sayin' army
Beatin' on my big bass drum, yes I am

That's why I'm saved, I'm saved
I'm saved, Lord, have mercy, I am saved
I'm saved, I'm saved, I am saved
I'm in that soul savin' army
Beatin' on my big bass drum, yes I am
I said I'm saved, yes, I'm saved
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord, I am saved
