Living below in this old sinful world
Hardly a comfort can afford
Striving alone to face temptation so
Now wont you tell me

Where could I go but to the lord
Where could I go oh where could I go
Seeking the refuge for my soul
Needing a friend to save me in the end
Wont you tell me
Where could I go but to the lord

Life here is grand with friends I love so dear
Comfort I get from gods own word
Yet when I face that chilling hand of death
Wont you tell me
Where could I go but to the lord

Where could I go but to the lord
Where could I go oh where could I go
Seeking the refuge for my soul
Needing a friend to save me in the end
Wont you tell me
Where could I go but to the lord

Up above my head there is music in the air
Up above my head there is music in the air
Up above my head there is music in the air, oh yeah!
And I really do believe, I really do believe
I really do believe there's a heaven somewhere
There's a heaven somewhere

I wanna soothe my my heart, I wanna ease my mind
I wanna move my shoes and see what I can find
I wanna stand up tall and open up my eyes
I wanna reach out my hand until I touch the skies
I was a poor lost lamb in a deep dark hole
But now I've found that light I'm gonna save my soul
I used to drink, I used to smoke
I used to smoke, drink and dance the hoochy-coo
I used to smoke and drink, smoke and drink and dance
The hoochy-coo

Oh yeh! and now I'm standing on thius corner praying for
Me and you

I-i-i that's why I'm saved I'm saved
People let me tell you bout kingdom come
You know I'm saved I'm saved
Well I can preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul saving army beating on that big bass
Drum

I used to cuss, I used to fuss
I used to fuss, cuss, worry all night long
I used to cuss and fuss, cuss and fuss,
Cuss and fuss and worry all night long
Well now I'm standing on this corner, I know right from
Wrong

I-i-i that's why I'm saved I'm saved
People let me tell you bout kingdom come
You know I'm saved I'm saved
Well I can preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul saving army beating on that big bass
Drum

I used to lie, I used to cheat
I used to lie, cheat, steal from peoples feet
I used to lie and cheat, lie and cheat and steal from
Peoples feet
Well now I'm steppin on to glory salvation in my beat

Because I'm saved, I'm saved
People let me tell you bout kingdom come
I am saved I'm saved
Well I can preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul saving army beating on that big bass
Drum

I'm in that soul saving army beating on that big bass
Drum
Oh yeh! because I'm saved, I'm saved
People let me tell you bout kingdom come
You know I'm saved I'm saved
Well I can preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm saved, I'm saved I'm saved
