Let It Roll

by Matthew Welde

i have no dollar to my name

i have no one else to blame

the days are lean the nights are long

oh i pray the lord above i don't get too far gone

for if i make one more mistake

the lord may claim my soul to take

mama was right about rocknroll

the lord may claim my soul

let it roll

 

i have no woman to call my own

she called me and said so on the telephone

as she was driving east singing Carolina’s song

oh i pray the lord above i don’t get too far gone

she warned before she made her break

the lord may claim your soul to take

and all this from a woman who made me whole

the lord may claim my soul

let it roll

 

keep that needle away from me

my arms are tied, my hands are free

i’ll get clean and carry on

oh i pray the lord above i don’t get too far gone

i’ll sweat it out, i’ll tremble and shake

the lord may claim my soul to take

all these years of living they take their toll

the lord may claim my soul

let it roll
