If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

I try to say Iíll do it then I donít much act like He

Iíve been turned away and fallen and Iím dyiní to be free

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

 

An atmosphere of trouble has been brewiní on my mind

I just canít hide out nowhere where it donít know where to find

Sure I know what Iíd inherit if Iíd let myself be meek

But Iím not that good a man yet just to turn the other cheek

 

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

I try to say Iíll do it then I donít much act like He

Iíve been turned away and fallen and Iím dyiní to be free

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

 

I fell into a barroomÖ just another Friday night

Although I wasnít lookiní donít you know I found a fight

One to doubt my reputation while he hooked me with his right

And begot that room to fadiní when I shoulda seen the light

 

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

I try to say Iíll do it then I donít much act like He

Iíve been turned away and fallen and Iím dyiní to be free

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

 

My temper started boiliní as I crawled up off that floor

The crowd they all were yelliní ďSock him down to knot the score!Ē

As my left uncorked and landed I recalled my Mamaís words

I wished I wouldíve listened though I guess I never heard

 

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

I try to say Iíll do it then I donít much act like He

Iíve been turned away and fallen and Iím dyiní to be free

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

 

My viílent lust kept growiníÖ man all hell came bustiní loose

His blood it shot out flowiní just like hot tomato juice

Then the cops blew in and took me to the judge who threw the book

Now I sit and think about The Golden Rule that I forsook

 

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me

I try to say Iíll do it then I donít much act like He

Iíve been turned away and fallen and Iím dyiní to be free

If it was good enough for Jesus thatís good enough for me
