If I Give My Soul Lyrics

by Tom Jones

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

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
'Til I started into drinking
Started playing music
Traveling with the devil's band

Oh, the years flew by
Like a mighty rush of eagles
My dreams and plans
Were all scattered in the wind

It's a lonesome life
When you lose the ones you live for
If I make my peace with Jesus
Will He 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 clean 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 breath within me
And bring her back to me?
