Lyrics:
I used to smoke
I used to drink
I used to smoke, drink, and dance the hoochie-coo

I used to smoke and drink
Smoke and drink and dance the hoochie-coo
Whoa yeah
But now I'm standin' on this corner
Prayin' for a-me and you
Ah hah

That's why I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
People let me tell you 'bout a, kingdom come

You know I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
I can preach until you're, deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul-savin' army
Beatin' on that big a-bass drum
Whoa yeah

I used to cuss
I used to fuss
I used to cuss, fuss and boogie all night long

I used to cuss and fuss
Cuss and fuss and boogie all night long
Wah hah
But now I'm standin' on this corner
Ah-I know right-a from wrong
Uh huh

That's why I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
People let me tell you 'bout a, kingdom come

You know I'm saved (saved)
Ah, saved (saved)
I can-a preach until you're, deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul-savin' army
Beatin' on that big a-bass drum
Whoa yeah

{sax solo}

I used to lie (lie)
I used to cheat (cheat)
I used to lie,(lie) cheat(cheat) and step on peoples feet

I used to lie and cheat
Lie and cheat and step on peoples feet
Oh yeah
But now I'm steppin' on the glory
Sal-vation is my beat
Whoa yeah

Because I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
People let me tell you 'bout a, kingdom come

You know I'm saved (saved)
Ah, saved (saved)
I can-a preach until you're, deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul-savin' army
Beatin' on that big a-bass drum
Whoa yeah

That's why I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
Oh-oh     (saved)
Oh-oh     (saved)
Saved     (saved)
Oh yeah   (saved)
Oh yeah   (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
Mm-mm     (saved)
Mm-hmm-mm (saved)
Uh-huh-huh(saved)
Oo-hoo-oo (saved)
Uh-huh-huh(saved) Ohhhh (saved) Ohhhh (saved) I'm saved (saved) Saved (saved) Saved (saved) Saved (saved) {fade} Transcribed by Todd Peach {todd@thepeaches.com}
