unknown - Something Got A Hold Of Me lyrics
Hank williams & audrey williams
[c] at first when i heard of some people who claim
That the old-time religion was [g] real
I [c] said "i'll go down, take a [f] look at the crowd
For [c] just that weak-[g] minded i [c] feel."
[c] i walked up the steps and i peeked in the door
But the devil said, "don't you go [g] in!"
But i [c] said, "it won't hurt me i'll [f] just step inside
And i'll [c] set as far [g] back as i [c] can." [but-]
[c] something got a hold of me [praise god]
Yes something got a hold of [g] me [oh! lord]
I [c] went there to fight, but i'll [f] tell you that night
God [c] certainly got a [g] hold of [c] me.
They sang like they meant it, they all clapped their hands
I said, "it's commotion, that's all."
"when they get down to pray, i'll just get up and leave
For i don't wanta be seen here at all."
But i bowed that time, he got started to preach
And he looked straight down at me
He told ev'rybody how mean that i was
He didn't talk like he thought much of me.
I sat in my seat just thinkin' it o'er
And then they all started to pray
The fire fell from heaven, i fell to the floor
I prayed there and god had his way. [for-]
