He ain't Never Done Me Nothin' but Good

Capo 3 (Alternate between E and A for Chorus)

He ain't never done me nothin'
Done me nothin' but good
Nothin' but good
Ooo, ooo ooo,
He ain't never done me nothin'
Done me nothin' but good,
Nothin' but good.


(E)Well, Job was a righteous man, the (A)devil couldn't (E)doubt it.
He surely loved the Saviour, there was (A)no doubt (E)about it.
Sa--tan cursed his body from his (A)feet to his (E)head;
And He told him all his children and his (A)cattle were (E)dead.
And J--ob's wife said, "Why don't you (A)curse your God and (E)die?"
But Job said, "Wom--an, you're (A)speakin' like a foolish child".(E)

(E)I gave my heart to Jesus and I (A)took Him as my (E)Saviour.
I cast my lots with the chosen ones and I (A)started out for (E)Heaven.
Soon I was forsaken and my (A)friends left one by (E)one;
But the good Lord walked beside me and He (A)never left me (E)alone.
He feed me when I was hungry,
(A)He cheered me when I was (E)sad.
He has been the dearest friend this (A)child has ever had.(E)

History tells of Polycarp who (A)died for the gospel's (E)sake.
They built a fire around his feet and (A)tied him to a (E)stake.
But the fire could not comsume him,
So they (A)pierced him with a (E)sword.
The blood ran down put out the fire,
But (A)still he praised the (E)Lord.
Now all these years I've served Him, He's (A)done me nothin' but (E)good.
Well, I (E)won't repent and I (A)won't recant,
Just (E)tell me why I should.
