    (intro) Am
                 Am
    Well, the rain was a-falling
                                          G 
    and the ground turned to mud.
             Am
    I was watching all the people
                                D
    running from the flood.
            Am
    So I started to prayin'
                                         G
    though I ain't no praying man,
              Em                   Am
    for the Lord to come a-helpin'
                 Em            Am
    knowing He'd understand.
    
        G              G/F#            Em
    Deliver your children to the good, good life.
      C                        C\B               Am
    Give 'em peace and shelter and a fork and knife.
                G               G/F#             Em
    Shine a light in the morning and a light at night.
                  G    G/F#  Em
    And if a thing goes wrong,
                        C   C/B  Am
    you'd better make it right.
    
    Well, I had me a woman.
    She was good and clean.
    She spent all the day
    with the washing machine.
    But when it came to lovin'
    she was never around:
    she was out getting dirty
    all over town.
    
    Deliver your children to the good, good life.
    Give 'em peace and shelter and fork and knife.
    Shine a light in the morning and a light at night.
    And if a thing goes wrong,
    you'd better make it right.
    
                     Dm
    Well, I was low on the money
                                   C       
    and my truck broke down.
            Dm                       
    I was on my way
                            G
    to the lost and found.
           Dm
    So I took it to a dealer.
                            C   
    I said, "Make it run.
             Am             Dm
    Well I ain't got no money,
           Am          Dm
    but I got me a gun."
    
                     Dm
    I said, "You robbed me before,
                                 C 
    so I'm robbing you back,
                Dm
    and if it don't put you straight,
                                       G
    it'll put you on the right track.
              Dm
    Well, I ain't no devil 
                         C
    and I ain't no saint,
        Am             Dm
    but I can tell a dealer
              Am             Dm
    by the color of his paint."
    
    Deliver your children to the good, good life.
    Give 'em peace and shelter and fork and knife.
    Shine a light in the morning and a light at night.
    And if a thing goes wrong,
    you'd better make it right.
    
    (instrumental solo same as verse)
    (repeat chorus)
    
            Am
    If you want good eggs,
                                 G
    you gotta feed that hen.
                   Em                       Am
    And if you wanna hear some more,
                  Em
    well I'll sing
            Am    Em    Am
    it again.
