Well, the rain was a-fallin'
And the ground turned to mud
I was watching all the people
Running from the flood

So I started to prayin'
Though I ain’t no prayin' man
For the Lord to come a helpin'
Knowing he’d understand

Deliver your children to the good, good life
Give’em peace and shelter and a fork and a knife
Shine a light in the morning and a light at night
And if a thing goes wrong, you’d better make it right

Well, I had me a woman
She was good and clean
She spent all day
With the washing machine

But when it come to lovin'
She was never around
She was out getting dirty
All over town

Deliver your children to the good, good life
Give’em peace and shelter and a fork and a knife
Shine a light in the morning and a light at night
And if a thing goes wrong, you’d better make it right

Well, I was low on money
And my truck broke down
I was on my way
To the lost and found

So I took it to a dealer
I said, “Make it run.
Well, I ain’t got no money
But I got me a gun.”

I said, “You robbed me before
So I’m robbing you back
And if it don’t put you straight
It’ll put you on the right track.”

Well, I ain’t no devil
And I ain’t no saint
But I can tell a dealer
By the color of his paint

Deliver your children to the good, good life
Give’em peace and shelter and a fork and a knife
Shine a light in the morning and a light at night
And if a thing goes wrong, you’d better make it right

Deliver your children to the good, good life
Give’em peace and shelter and a fork and a knife
Shine a light in the morning and a light at night
And if a thing goes wrong, you’d better make it right

If you want good eggs
You gotta feed the hen
And if you wanna hear some more
Well, I’ll sing it again
