I FOUND JESUS ON THE JAILHOUSE FLOOR
 
Intro
 
There was (A) once a time when I was dead in(E7)side
I cussed the Lord for the day I was born
And prayed to the Devil to (A) die
Just when I thought the Devil had won
Someone (A7) opened up the (D) door
The King of (E7) kings
The Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse (A) floor
 
Now, (D) he broke the chains that bound me and now I'm (A) free
Today I'm right where mama prayed I'd (E) be
I'm (D) down on my knees, now I believe
What mama knew for (A) sure
He's the (E7) King of kings
The Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse (A) floor
 
Solo
 
Now, (A) if you're in trouble friend, let me tell you what to (E7) do
I'll tell you what he's done for me
And I know what he'll do for (A) you
It makes no difference what you've done
You've a friend in the (A7) One I ad(D)ore
The King of (E7)kings
The Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse (A) floor
 
Now, (D) he broke the chains that bound me and now I'm (A) free
Today I'm right where mama prayed I'd (E) be
I'm (D) down on my knees, now I believe
What mama knew for (A) sure
He's the (E7) King of kings
The Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse (A) floor
He's the (E7) King of kings
The Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse (A) floor
