I'm Better Off
Recorded by Johnny Paycheck
Written by Wendy Bagwell

C F G7 C
When I was a little boy my mother used to say
F G7 C
Keep on trusting in the Lord there’ll be a better day
F G7 C
My mother sang Amazing Grace like no one you ever heard
F G7 C
Daddy rode a sway back mule delivering the word

F G7 F
And I’m better off than I ever thought I would beeeee
G7 C
Than I thought I would be

F G7 C
Well momma cooked the sausage I never had enough
F G7 C
My daddy said eat more bread boy cause things are getting rough
F G7 C
We were poor and that’s a fact but there’s one thing we had
F G7 C
My momma blessed with kindness and a bible totin’ dad

Repeat #2

F G7 C
We had a preacher named McDuff that came into our town
F G7 C
He said old time religion is surly coming down
F G7 C
He said I’d be better off if I would just repent
F G7 C
Now I’m doing better cause down the isle I went

Repeat #2
