Well you can read out your bible
You can fall down on your knees
An' pray to the lord, pretty mama
But it ain't gonna do no good
You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
If you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your low down ways.

Well you can run down to the white house
You can gaze on the capitol dome
You can pound on the president's gate, pretty mama
But you oughta know by now it's gonna be too late
You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
If you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your low down ways.

Well you can run down to the desert
You can fall down to the burnin' sand
You can raise up your right hand, pretty mama
But you've done lost your one good man, you better understand
You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
If you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your low down ways.

An' you can hitch hike on the highway
You can stand all alone by the side of the road
You can try to flag a ride back home, pretty mama
But you ain't gonna ride in my car no more
You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
If you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your low down ways.

So you can read out your hymnbook
You can fall down on your knees
An' pray to the lord, pretty mama
But it ain't gonna do no good
You're gonna need
You're gonna need my help someday
Well, if you can't quit your sinnin'
Please quit your low down ways.  up

So pretty mama you'll have to do.
You're gonna need you're gonna need
My help someday, my help someday.
If you can't quit your sinning,
Please quit your low down ways.

Well I woke up this morning,
Look out my door,
I can't tell my milk cow, pretty mama,
By the way she moans.
If you see my milk cow
Lord lord drive her home.
I ain't had no milk and butter
Since my cow's been gone.

Well now you've been rambling for miles around,
I know you been wearied in another man's...
In another man's house,
In another man's hometown.
You're gonna need,
You're gonna need my help someday, my help someday.
If you can't quit your sinning,
Please quit your low down ways.

So you can read out your hymnbook,
You can fall down on your knees
And pray to the lord, pretty mama,
But it ain't gonna do no good.
You're gonna need,
You're gonna need my help someday.
If you can't quit your sinning,
Please quit your low down ways.  up
