If I prayed as hard as I play,
I might be in heaven by now,
If I spent that much time, with God on my mind,
I might be in heaven by now.
The time I spend, with my guitar,
Well it’s most of my day, by far,
But if a thousand strums, could pay for just one sin,
I’d have the cleanest soul ever been.
I try to stay, fit and trim
So each day I go to the gym,
But if I put that much time, into, pumping out prayers,
I’d be climbing up heavenly stairs.
My calendar’s full of so much stuff,
I can’t seem to do enuff,
But if my focus was more toward spiritual things,
I just might be flapping my wings.
Ya think singin’ this song might shake my tree,
And might get me down on my knees,
But I’m a sinner by trade, that’s the way I was made,
Guess I don’t really deserve being saved.
