Young ones in the jailhouse sleeping it off
Church folks saying that his soul is lost
Man you shoulda seen him, all the faces turned red
Yep, when the preacher stood up and said
The only thing different in sinners and saints
One is forgiven and the other one ain't.

--- Instrumental ---

Sally got in trouble a few years ago
With a married man down in Tupelo
The way folks talked in this little old town
Lord, there ain't no way she's ever gonna live it down
The only thing different in sinners and saints
One is forgiven and the other one ain't.

--- Instrumenrtal ---

Nobody's perfect, we're just flesh and blood
One foot on the high road, one in the mud
There's a mighty fine line between right and wrong
Don't point your finger, don't matter which side you're on
The only thing different in sinners and saints
One is forgiven and the other one ain't.

The only thing different in sinners and saints
One is forgiven and the other one ain't.
One is forgiven and the other one ain't...
