Johnny Cash,



Well, now I heard that you been talking about me, really, I don't mind

I know you try to block my progress a lot of the time

Well the mean things you said don't make me feel bad,

'Cause I can't miss a friend that I never had,

(I've got)I've got Jesus, and that's enough, (that's enough) that's enough.



When I'm sick, (he's there), in trouble, (he's there),

When I call him he will answer my prayer (answer my prayer)

When I'm burdened, (he's there), with a load, (he's there),

That's when Jesus is a comforter to my soul

Well, you may scorn me, turn your back on me,

God's got his arms wrapped all around me

(I've got) I've got Jesus, and that's enough, (that's enough) that's enough.



You know there's been a lot of times when I didn't have a dime,

I didn't cry to nobody but my Lord.

He heard my plea, and came to see about me, cause

He's one thing I can afford

So if you push me down, He'll pick me up

And He'll stick by me when the going gets tough,

(I've got) I've got Jesus, and that's enough, (that's enough) that's enough.



Well He's the great emancipator and my heart regulator, (Jesus is), yes heis

He'll make my way brighter and my burden lighter, (yes He will), Jesus will

Well, you may scorn me, turn your back on me,

God's got his arms wrapped all around me

And He fights down the devil 'till he makes him give up, and that's enough,

(that's enough) that's enough.

(go to 2nd chorus)
