Billy Joe Shaver
IF I GIVE MY SOUL


Verse 1:
      D                               G                  D 
 	 Down a dangerous road,i have come to where i'm standing
                                                      A
 	 With a heavy heart,and my hat clutched in my hand
                        D               G                D   
 	 Such a foolish fool,God ain't known no greater sinner
                 G                 D           A             D         
 	 I have come in search of Jesus,hoping he will understand


Verse 2:
      D                             G                D  
 	 I had a woman once,she was kind and she was gentle
                                               A
 	 Had a child by me,who grew up to be a man
                        D          G             D  
 	 I had a steady job,til i started into drinking
                G              D              A                D   
 	 And i started making music that went with the devil's band


Verse 3:
      D                    G                        D     
 	 Oh the years flew by like a mighty rush of eagles
                        G                              A
 	 My dreams and plans were all scattered in the wind
                         D             G                 D
 	 It's a lonesome life,when you lose the ones you live for
              G                   D              A             D
 	 If i make my peace with Jesus will they take me back again


Chorus:
      D               G                                      D
 	 If i give my soul,will he cleanse these clothes i'm wearin'
                      G                                A  
 	 If i give my soul,will he put new boots on my feet
                     D            G              D  
 	 If i bow my head and beg God for his forgiveness
                  G                   D                A            D  
 	 Will he breathe new breath inside me and give back my dignity


Chorus bis:
      D               G                                D
 	 If i give my soul,will he stop my hands from shaking
                      G                         A   
 	 If i give my soul,will my son love me again
                      D             G              D   
 	 If i give my soul,and she knows i really mean it
              G                D             A             D      
 	 If i give my soul to Jesus will she take me back again


Chorus bis.

      D       G                D             A             D 
 	 If i give my soul to Jesus will she take me back again
