I'm Better Off

Song Author Wendy Bagwell Performer: Johnny Paycheck Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]When I was a [F]little boy my [G7]mother used to [C]say  
Keep on trusting [F]in the Lord [G7]there´ll be a better [C]day  
My mother sang [F]Amazing Grace [G7]like no one you ever [C]heard
Daddy rode a [F]sway back mule [G7]delivering the [C]word

And I´m better off than I ever [F]thought I would [G7]beee   [F]ee  
[G7]Than I thought I would [C]be  

Well momma cooked the [F]sausage [G7]I never had [C]enough
My daddy said eat [F]more bread boy [G7]cause things are getting [C]rough
We were poor and [F]that´s a fact but [G7]there´s one thing we [C]had  
My momma blessed with [F]kindness and a [G7]bible totin´ [C]dad  

And I´m better off than I ever [F]thought I would [G7]beee   [F]ee  
[G7]Than I thought I would [C]be  

We had a preacher named [F]McDuff that [G7]came into our [C]town
He said old time [F]religion is [G7]surly coming [C]down
He said I´d be [F]better off [G7]if I would just [C]repent
Now I´m doing [F]better cause [G7]down the isle I [C]went

And I´m better off than I ever [F]thought I would [G7]beee   [F]ee  
[G7]Than I thought I would [C]be  


When I was a little boy my mother used to say
Keep on trusting in the Lord there´ll be a better day
My mother sang Amazing Grace like no one you ever heard
Daddy rode a sway back mule delivering the word

And I´m better off than I ever thought I would beeeee
Than I thought I would be

Well momma cooked the sausage I never had enough
My daddy said eat more bread boy cause things are getting rough
We were poor and that´s a fact but there´s one thing we had
My momma blessed with kindness and a bible totin´ dad

And I´m better off than I ever thought I would beeeee
Than I thought I would be

We had a preacher named McDuff that came into our town
He said old time religion is surly coming down
He said I´d be better off if I would just repent
Now I´m doing better cause down the isle I went

And I´m better off than I ever thought I would beeeee
Than I thought I would be
