​I Could Have Gone Right (Just As Easy As I Went Wrong)

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album Trouble & Me (1965).

I was born a good boy, my folks just loved me so
They gave me every chance they could to make my life a gold
But I got in with the wrong crowd and the wrong crowd led me on
I could have gone right just as easy as I went wrong

I went to the places where sin just waits for you
And I fell for the wrong things like sinners always do
Now here I sit in prison just waiting for the day
That they'll lead me throught that door and burn my life away

Oh mama please forgive me, the shame is all my own
I could have gone right just as easy as I went wrong

Oh mama please forgive me, the shame is all my own
I could have gone right just as easy as I went wrong
