Craig Herbertson – Jesus Will You Save Me Now lyrics

I was born in the Land of Cakes
Never heard of Tennessee
I never knew my father
And I guess he never knew me

My mammy worked hard to feed us
Cruel was the devil's cure
The church wanted all of our money
But we stole it back for the poor

Jesus will you save me now
Jesus will you save me now
I ain't been good but I ain't been too bad

So Jesus will you save me now

At thirteen I was drinking whisky
At fifteen I played pool in bars
At sixteen I had my first woman
I missed out on fancy cars

There's a drought in Arizona
There's a flood in New Orleans
There's soldiers dying out east
Who know what it all means
