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
Whoa yeah
But now I’m standing on this corner
Praying for a-me and you
Ah hah

That’s why I’m saved
[Saved]
I’m saved
[Saved]
People let me tell you about a, kingdom come

You know I’m saved
[Saved]

[Saved]
I can preach until you’re deaf and dumb
I’m in that soul saving army
Beating on that big-ah bass drum
Whoa 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

[Saved]
People let me tell you about a kingdom come

You know I’m saved

Beatin’ on that big-ah bass drum
Whoa yeah
