Everybody Who Prays Don't Go To Heaven
(everybody who sin don't go to hell)

Notes

Well, that's a subtle title... would make a great sermon..

I've been listening to the new Tom Jones CD and the 70's Gospel Compilation Straight Street and still trying to write my own "People Get Ready", which, believe it or not, was in a similar groove when the Band first ran it though at rehearsal.. it's a great little swinging ditty, very happy..

I'm always amazed how at funerals, no matter if the deceased was a wife bashing, drunk, coke head pimp, it'll still be said that he's now "having a beer with Jesus, chasing all the angels and betting on the racing Reindeers..!!".. the guy's in hell, why pretend..

Anyway, that was the original idea and one day on the way to Church, the original line of "Everybody who dies don't go to heaven", the song sorted itself out during my 1/2 car trip...praise the Lord.!

Lyrics

Ch) Everybody who prays don't go to Heaven
Everybody who sin don't go to Hell
Will you make it to the promised land,
Ooor maybe not do that well
You better take sides, you better beware
Won't belong before you're there
Everybody who prays don't go to Heaven
Everybody who sin don't go to Hell

V1-- You might be thinkin'that you got it made
You might be thinkin that you're goin' to Hades
It ain't but once you travel down this road
You better get it straight, get it right
Wrap it up real tight
There ain't but 1 way to get back home


Chant) Everybody sins, everybody prays
Both you and me, from day to day
Everybody sins, everybody prays
Yes you and me, along the way

V2) Are the one that talks the talk
Are you the one walks the walk
You better find out, where you stand
Take a trip up, take a trip down
But cha, don't mess around
Better decide while you still can
