B.J. Thomas

He's Got Religion

Play

I grew up in the void place south of Heaven
Couldn't find the Lord to save my life
Then I realized the trouble is I wasn't lookin'
Ohh if you don't seek
How can you expect to find

So I talked to the Man
I said whats the deal now
He was kind and he said
You know the way
Then I reached into my soul and bought a one way ticket
The only price I paid was some friends who often say

Oh no here he comes and he's got religion
Oh no now you know that's all we'll hear
But I say
Ain't it hard to believe that life's sweetest story
Still finds it's way and falls upon deaf ears

Well I have to admit that my conversation
Gets around to the message of my song
Tell me how can we go out and teach all nations
If we haven't heard the lesson here at home

And I guess when your life's been blessed like mine has
You just naturally want to let others know
So my friend if we meet by the gates of Glory
I wanna be the one to say I told you so

Oh no here he comes and he's got religion
Oh no now you know that's all we'll hear
But I say
Ain't it hard to believe that life's sweetest story
Still finds it's way and falls upon deaf ears

Oh no here he comes and he's got religion
Oh no now you know that's all we'll hear
But I say
Ain't it hard to believe that life's sweetest story
Still finds it's way and falls upon deaf ears

Oh no here he comes and he's got religion
Oh no now you know that's all we'll hear
But I say
Ain't it hard to believe that life's sweetest story
Still finds it's way and falls upon deaf ears
