Tim O'brien – Working On A Building lyrics

Verse 1
Well if I was a sinner
I tell you what I would do
I'd quit my sinning and work on a building too

Chorus
I'm working on a building
I'm working on a building
I'm working on a building
For my Lord for my Lord

It's a holy ghost building
It's a holy ghost building (hallelujah)
It's a holy ghost building
For my Lord for my Lord

Verse 2
Well if I was a gambler
I'll tell you what I would do
I'd quit my gambling and work on a building too

Chorus

Verse 3
Well if I was a drunkard
I'll tell you what I would do
I'd quit my drinking and work on a building too

Chorus

Verse 4
Well, if I was a preacher
I'll tell you what I would do
I would go on preaching
And work on a building too.

Chorus
