  • I had me a girl
    Who taught me those things
    A young man should know
    Down, down on my knees
    I'd beg and I'd plead
    To learn a little bit more
    Oh that woman taught me to pray
    I saw Heaven every day
    Lord, she could

    Oooooooo
    Ooooooohhhhohhhh
    Ooooooo
    Ooooohhhhhhhhhh

    I, I had me a boy
    Who buttoned me down
    Threw me a line
    He, he washed me as clean
    As a sinner could be
    Showed me the light
    Ooo that boy, he taught me to pray
    But for all of his spit-shinin' ways
    Lord, he could

    Oooooooo
    Ooooooohhhhohhhh
    Ooooooo
    Ooooohhhhhhhhhh

    I had me a girl
    Like cigarette smoke
    She came and she went
    I slipped through his hands
    To my back door man
    Under his chin
    Oh that woman taught me to pray
    But for all her wandering ways
    She could

    Oooooooo
    Ooooooohhhhohhhh
    Ooooooo
    Ooooohhhhhhhhhh [Repeat] Writer/s: JOY WILLIAMS
