This song has been covered by Beth Hart under the title "Sinner's Prayer".
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
Well if I've done somebody wrong
Lord, have mercy if You please

I used to have plenty of money, the finest clothes in town
But bad luck and trouble overtaken me, bound to get me down
Please have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
Well if I've done somebody wrong
Lord have mercy if You please

Keep on working now, child
Oh in the morning

Well if I've been a bad boy, baby then I'll change my ways
I don't want bad luck and trouble worry me all my days
Please have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
Well if I've done somebody wrong
Lord, have mercy if You please, oh Lord
