Something Got a Hold of Me Lyrics:
Hank williams & audrey williams
[c] at first when I heard of some people who claim
That the old-time religion was [g] real
I [c] said "iíll go down, take a [f] look at the crowd
For [c] just that weak-[g] minded I [c] feel."
[c] I walked up the steps and I peeked in the door
But the devil said, "donít you go [g] in!"
But I [c] said, "it wonít hurt me Iíll [f] just step inside
And Iíll [c] set as far [g] back as I [c] can." [but-]
[c] something got a hold of me [praise god]
Yes something got a hold of [g] me [oh! lord]
I [c] went there to fight, but Iíll [f] tell you that night
God [c] certainly got a [g] hold of [c] me.
They sang like they meant it, they all clapped their hands
I said, "itís commotion, thatís all."
"when they get down to pray, Iíll just get up and leave
For I donít wanta be seen here at all."
But I bowed that time, he got started to preach
And he looked straight down at me
He told evírybody how mean that I was
He didnít talk like he thought much of me.
I sat in my seat just thinkiní it oíer
And then they all started to pray
The fire fell from heaven, I fell to the floor
I prayed there and God had his way. [for-]
