George Jones – Have Mercy On Me lyrics

My mother and me know all the books of the bible
She guided my way as long as she could
But I wondered astray to worship false idols
It brought me shame, she told me it would.

Have mercy on me (have mercy on me)
Dear Lord a poor sinner (dear Lord a poor sinner)
I'm looking for you (I'm looking for you)
In Heaven some day (in heaven some day.)

On the righteous road (on the righteous road)
I'm just a beginner (I'm just a beginner)
Have mercy on me (have mercy on me)
And show me the way (and show me the way.)

--- Instrumental ---

How many loved ones are already in Heaven
They're praying for me as if they know
They're hoping I'll change my way of living
Well, tell them I have they'll be happy to know.

Have mercy on me (have mercy on me)
Dear Lord a poor sinner (dear Lord a poor sinner)
I'm looking for you (I'm looking for you)
In Heaven some day (in heaven some day.)

On the righteous road (on the righteous road)
I'm just a beginner (I'm just a beginner)
Have mercy on me (have mercy on me)
And show me the way (and show me the way.)

--- Instrumental ---

Have mercy on me (have mercy on me)
Dear Lord a poor sinner (dear Lord a poor sinner)
I'm looking for you (I'm looking for you)
In Heaven some day (in heaven some day)

On the righteous road (on the righteous road)
I'm just a beginner (I'm just a beginner)
Have mercy on me (have mercy on me)
And show me the way (and show me the way...)
