The Lord Knows I'm Drinking
recorded by Cal Smith
written by Bill Anderson 
[3/4 time]

Hello Mrs. Johnson you self-righteous woman
Sunday School teacher what brings you out slumming
                  G               G7               C
Do you reckon the preacher would approve where you are
              G                            D7
Standing here visiting with a back-sliding Christian
In a neighborhood bar
Well yes that's my bottle and yes that's my glass
And I see you're eye balling this pretty young lass
                      G            G7             C
It ain't none of your business but yes she's with me
                     G                         D7
And we don't need no sermon you self-righteous woman
Just let us be
                   C                    G
The Lord knows I'm drinking and running around
                       C                        D7
And He don't need your loud mouth informing the town
                   C                          G
The Lord knows I'm sinning  and sinning ain't right
But me and the Good Lord's gonna have us a good talk
Later tonight
Goodbye Mrs. Johnson you self-righteous biddy
I don't need your preaching and I don't need your pity
                  G        G7         C
So go back to whatever you hypocrites do
                   G                       D7
And when I talk to Heaven be nice and I'll put in
A good word for you
repeat #3
