Something's Got a Hold on me
Recorded by Hank Williams Sr.
Written by A.P. Carter

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