GET RIGHT WITH GOD
Lucinda Williams


I would risk the serpent's bite

I would dance around with seven

I would kiss the diamondback

If I knew it would get me to heaven


Refrain:

'Cause I want to get right with god

Yes, you know you got to get right with god


I would burn soles of my feet

Burn the palms of both my hands

If I could learn and be complete

If I could walk righteously again


Refrain:

'Cause I want to get right with god

Yes, you know you got to get right with god


I would sleep on a bed of nails

Till my back was torn and bleeding

In the deep darkness of hell

The damascus of my meeting


Refrain:

'Cause I want to get right with god

Yes, you know you got to get right with god


I asked God about his plan

To save us all from Satan's slaughter

If I give up one of my lambs

Will you take me as one of your daughters


Refrain:

'Cause I want to get right with god

Yes, you know you got to get right with god
