Intro: (E) (E) (E) (E) walk up to A
(A) Every Sunday morning
That ol' preacher lets his ser(G)mon (E) ring
His only (A) daughter's in the choir
And I hang on every word (G) she (E) sings
I heard him (C) say that blessed is the man who (D) looks on lovely things
Well I don't (C) know how much more blessed (D) I could ever be
(E) I see an angel right before my eyes
When the (G) spirit (A) moves you
(B) You gotta stand up and testify
(C) Preacher can you save me I'm in (D) love with your daughter
(C) I gotta have her
Come (D) Hell or high water
He must have caught me looking at her
Cause he started preaching brimstone and fire
He said boy you're gonna burn
If you don't learn how to control your desire
We'll preacher I've been burning since the moment I walked in
So make it short and sweet and pass the plate and say 'Amen'
Oh (C) Lord, won't you forgive me
For (D) it's a sin, I know
For (C) thinkin' things I'm thinkin'
But, it's (D) out of my control
(C) I can't forget her, even (D) though I know I oughta
(C) I gotta have her, come (D) Hell or high water
