Yeah, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
Yeah, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
Well, if that's the case, that's the case
I think I'm going to shoot that man, yeah, then fallin' on my knees

Well, this morning, God knows, that man he comes waltzing in
Yeah, he comes just waltzing in
So, I got my shotgun, I broke down, I started to mow my baby down, yeah

Yeah, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
If that's the case now, people
I'm gonna mow my baby down, I'm gonna mow my baby down
I'm gonna shoot that man, yeah, I'm gonna shoot that man

You don't put yourself out, you don't put yourself out
You don't treat your baby right
No, no, no, no, you don't treat your baby right
But darling, there come a time you're gonna need my love again
Yeah, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do

You don't seem to understand that I've got your life right in my hands

Yeah, they tell me God forgives you for almost anything you do
Yeah, anything you do
