Submitted by: Gene Graham [firstname.lastname@example.org] Performer: Hank Williams, Sr. Words and music: Fred Rose THANK GOD [G] There's a road that's straight and narrow That the saints have travelled on Paved with all the tribulations Of the [A] martyrs that have [D7] gone If you're [G] grateful for their vict'ries And for showin' us the way Then give thanks for all your blessin's, Get [D7] on your knees and [G] pray. CHORUS Thank God for ev'ry flower and each tree Thank God for all the [A] mountains and the [D7] seas Thank [G] God for givin' life to you and me Wherever you may [D7] be, Thank [G] God. In this world of grief and sorrow Filled with selfishness and greed There remains the gloyr fountain To supply our every need You can find it in the temple With a welcome on the door But be sure to count your blessin's Before you ask for more. CHORUS Be forgivin to the wayward Like the Master told us to When He said forgive them Father For they know not what they do They would change their way of livin' If they could but understand So remember they're your brothers They need a helpin' hand.
