If I Give My Soul  Billy Joe Shaver


*********************** IF I GIVE MY SOUL **********************
written and performed by Billy Joe Shaver.
Verse 1:
[D] Down a dangerous road,i have c[G]ome to where i'm st[D]anding
With a heavy heart,and my hat clutched in my h[A]and
Such a foolish f[D]ool,God ain't kn[G]own no greater si[D]nner
I have co[G]me in search of Je[D]sus,hoping h[A]e will underst[D]and
Verse 2:
[D] I had a woman once,she was k[G]ind and she was g[D]entle
Had a child by me,who grew up to be a m[A]an
I had a steady j[D]ob,til i st[G]arted into dri[D]nking
And i st[G]arted making mu[D]sic that went w[A]ith the devil's b[D]and
Verse 3:
[D] Oh the years flew b[G]y like a mighty rush of e[D]agles
My dreams and pl[G]ans were all scattered in the w[A]ind
It's a lonesome l[D]ife,when you l[G]ose the ones you l[D]ive for
If i m[G]ake my peace with Je[D]sus will they t[A]ake me back ag[D]ain
[D] If i give my s[G]oul,will he cleanse these clothes i'm w[D]earin'
If i give my s[G]oul,will he put new boots on my f[A]eet
If i bow my h[D]ead and beg G[G]od for his forg[D]iveness
Will he br[G]eathe new breath ins[D]ide me and give b[A]ack my dignit[D]y
Chorus bis:
[D] If i give my s[G]oul,will he stop my hands from sh[D]aking
If i give my s[G]oul,will my son love me ag[A]ain
If i give my s[D]oul,and she kn[G]ows i really me[D]an it
If i g[G]ive my soul to Je[D]sus will she t[A]ake me back ag[D]ain
Chorus bis.
[D] If i g[G]ive my soul to Je[D]sus will she t[A]ake me back ag[D]ain
