Something's Got a Hold on me by Hank Williams Sr.
G At first when I heard of some people who claim
D7 That the old-time religion was real
C I said I'll go down take a look at the crowd
D7 G For just that weak minded I feel I walked up the steps and I peeked in the door
D7 But the Devil said don't you go in
C But I said It won't hurt me I'll just step inside G D7 G And set as far back as I can But something got a hold of me Praise God
D7 Yes something got a hold Of me
C I went there to fight but I'll tell you that night
D7 G God certainly got a hold of me They sang like they meant it they all clapped their hands
D7 I said it's commotion that's all
C When they get down to pray I'll just get up and leave
D7 G For I don't wanna be seen here at all But I bowed that time he got started to preach
D7 And He looked right straight down at me G C He told everybody how mean that I was
G He didn't talk like He thought much of me I sat in my seat just thinking it over
D7 And then they all started to pray
C The fire fell from Heaven I knelt to the floor
D7 G I prayed there and God had His way And now then I know I don't need to doubt
D7 For I got an experience that night
C I'll never forget it as long as I live
D7 G I found that salvation was right repeat #2
