GOOD WITH GOD

I went to church in 1995, they wouldn't recognize me now.
Holes in my shoes and my jeans and my shirt, Lord knows I could use a few pounds.
Don't have much except a smoker's cough, and a story to tell,
The last few years, wherever I am, I always end up in jail.
I just do my time, cause nobody posts my bail,

Chorus
I ain't good with people,
Most ain't good with me,
But I don't need to put up no façade.
Cause I'm good with God.
I'm good with God.

Once I had a 9 to 5, two ex-wives and three kids,
Today, if you ask, they deny I'm alive, can't blame 'em for what I did.
The best gift I can give 'em is to never see them again.
All I can do every day is to try to survive and maintain.
Wherever I am is what's left of my domain.

Repeat chorus

Bridge
A stranger felt sorry and gave me a hundred dollar bill one day.
But I saw a homeless woman with a shoeless child, so I gave it all away.
This is how I pray.
Let's all pray. (Amen)

Repeat chorus
I'm good with God. (6x)
