I used to smoke, I used to drink
I used to smoke, drink, and dance the hoochie-coo
I used to smoke and drink

Smoke and drink and dance the hoochie-coo, oh yeah
But now I'm standin' on this corner
Prayin' for me and you
That's why I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved

People, let me tell you 'bout a kingdom come
You know, I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved

I can preach, until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul savin' army
Beatin' on that big bass drum, oh yeah

I used to cuss, I used to fuss
I used to cuss, fuss and boogie all night long
I used to cuss and fuss
Cuss and fuss and boogie all night long

But now, I'm standin' on this corner
I know, right from wrong
That's why I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved

People, let me tell you 'bout a kingdom come
You know, I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved

I can preach, until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul savin' army
Beatin' on that big bass drum, oh yeah

I used to lie, lie
I used to cheat, cheat
I used to lie, lie, cheat, cheat and step on people's feet
I used to lie and cheat
Lie and cheat and step on people's feet, oh yeah

But now I'm steppin' on the glory
Salvation is my beat, oh yeah
Because I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved

People, let me tell you about a kingdom come
You know, I'm saved, saved
Oh, saved, saved

I can preach until you're deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul savin' army
Beatin' on that big bass drum, oh yeah

That's why I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved
I'm saved, saved

Saved
Saved
Saved
