lyrics

V1) I’m looking for the answer in America.
And I don’t think I’m asking for much.
I have found trouble wherever I’ve been, and heartache with whomever I’ve touched.
The friends I had once are gone; like scatterlings over the earth.
The thoughts of what were, are as bad as what are; and I can’t decide which is worse.

CH) God ain't a friend of us sinners,
God ain't a friend of us low folks.
God ain't a friend. He just keeps... one step ahead... of me.

V2) I know that once I had something, but I woke up this morning; it was gone!
I picked my head up off of my arms, and I kept traveling on.
It could be I’m looking for freedom, but freedom don’t come without cost.
Some say that freedom’s losing all that you got, but what if all you had was all you lost?

CH) God ain't a friend of us sinners,
God ain't a friend of us low folks.
God ain't a friend. He just keeps... one step ahead... of me.

V3) I am no friend to Ophelia, and Ophelia she’s no friend of mine.
We heard redemption, it travels in pairs, so together we’re biding our time.
Sometimes I think that she’ll save me, but sometimes I know that she won’t.
I’ll save myself in a matter of time. God forgive me if I don’t.

CH) God ain't a friend of us sinners,
God ain't a friend of us low folks.
God ain't a friend. He just keeps... one step ahead... of me.
