Down a dangerous road, I have come to where I'm standing
With a heavy heart and my hat clutched in my hand
Such a foolish man, God ain't known no greater sinner
I have come in search of Jesus, hoping he will understand

If I give my soul, will he cleanse these clothes I'm wearin'?
If I give my soul, will he put new boots on my feet?
If I bow my head and beg God for his forgiveness
Will he breathe new life within me and bring her back to me?

I had a woman once, she was kind and she was gentle
Had a child by me, who grew up to be a man
I had a steady job till I started into drinking
And I started making music traveling with the Devil's Band

Oh the years flew by like a mighty rush of eagles
Our dreams and plans were all scattered in the wind
And it's a lonesome life, when you lose the ones you live for
If I make my peace with Jesus, will they take me back again?

If I give my soul, will he stop my hands from shaking?
If I give my soul, will my son love me again?
If I give my soul and she knows I really mean it
If I give my soul to Jesus, will she take me back again?

If I give my soul, will he cleanse these clothes I'm wearin'?
If I give my soul, will he put new boots on my feet?
If I bow my head and beg God for his forgiveness
Will he breathe new life within me and bring her back to me?
