Hank Williams – SOMETHING GOT A HOLD OF ME lyrics

Hank Williams & Audrey Williams
[C] At first when I heard of some people who claim
That the old-time religion was [G] real
I [C] said "I'll go down, take a [F] look at the crowd
For [C] just that weak-[G] minded I [C] feel. "
[C] I walked up the steps and I peeked in the door
But the Devil said, "Don't you go [G] in!"
But I [C] said, "It won't hurt me I'll [F] just step inside
And I'll [C] set as far [G] back as I [C] can. " [But-]
chorus
[C] Something Got A Hold Of Me [Praise God]
Yes Something Got A Hold Of [G] Me [Oh! Lord]
I [C] went there to fight, but I'll [F] tell you that night
God [C] certainly got a [G] hold of [C] me.
They sang like they meant it, they all clapped their hands
I said, "It's commotion, that's all."
"When they get down to pray, I'll just get up and leave
For I don't wanta be seen here at all. "
But I bowed that time, he got started to preach
And he looked straight down at me
He told ev'rybody how mean that I was
He didn't talk like he thought much of me.
I sat in my seat just thinkin' it o'er
And then they all started to pray
The fire fell from Heaven, I fell to the floor
I prayed there and God had His way. [For-]
chorus
