Am                                                    G
Well, the rain was a-falling and the ground turned to mud
      Am                                       D
I was watching all the people running from the flood
     Am                                            G
So I started to prayin' though I ain't no prayin' man
        Em             Am              Em         Am
For the Lord to come a helpin' knowing he'd understand.

G            D/F#             Em
Deliver your children to the good good life
C                  G/B           Am
Give 'em peace and shelter and a fork and knife
        G            D/F#           Em
Shine a light in the morning and a light at night
         G     D/F#  Em                C    G/B  Am
And if a thing goes wrong you'd better make it   right.

Am                                       G
Well, I had me a woman, she was good and clean
    Am                                D
She spent all day with the washing machine
            Am                            G
But when it came to lovin' she was never around
        Em          Am      Em      Am
She was out getting dirty  all over town.


            Dm                              C
Well, I was low on money and my truck broke down
      Dm                        G 
I was on my way to the lost and found
     Dm                                  C
So I took it to a dealer, I said make it run
        Am            Dm          Am       Dm
Well, I ain't got no money, but I got me a gun.

           Dm                                   C
I said you robbed me before so I'm robbing you  back
          Dm                                                G 
And if it don't put you straight it'll put you on the right track
        Dm                            C
Well, I ain't no devil and I ain't no saint
    Am           Dm            Am           Dm
But I can tell a dealer by the color of his paint.


Am    G    Am    D
Am    G    Em    Am    Em   Am


       Am                                 G
If you want good eggs you gotta feed that hen
           Em              Am
And if you wanna hear some more
           Em         Am
Well, I'll sing it again.
