Oh Soul!

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jim Lauderdale

I done what I done, I said what I said
I run where I've run, let the angels make my bed
I didn't come to fight, I come for to sing
I come to praise the light and to let the banjo ring

Chorus
Oh soul, see me through the night
Oh Lord, help me do it right
Oh soul, see me through the night
Oh Lord, help me do it right

I didn't come to curse, I come for to pray
Chapter, book and verse, we are only mortal play
Don't let me bend, don't let me stray
Don't let me end up another castaway

[chorus]

The boat is at the dock, the captain at the wheel
I didn't come to talk, but this is how I feel
This is all she wrote, this is all I got to say
I'm going to catch the boat if I have to stowaway

[chorus]

I done what I done, I said what I said
I run where I've run, let the angels make my bed
I didn't come to fight, I come for to sing
I come to praise the light and to let the banjo ring

[chorus]
Oh Lord, help me do it right
