lyrics

So Jesus wants to be a part of my life
Well he better not go mess it up this time
He ain't done no good from what I've seen
He ain't done a good job of keeping me clean

Fallen down twice in the past few days
Tequila ain't ever too far away
Well there ain't no cure for the lonely heart
But to take it to the river for a brand new start

I don’t need a helping hand, cos I'm big enough to stand
I've seen all the vices that have tried to bring me down
I don’t need a helping hand cos I'm big enough to stand
I don’t need no one to tell me how to be a better man

Seen the good life don’t get me wrong
But everyone's a sinner when the nights get long
Praying to the lord in the heavens above
Cos when I'm with those girls i ain't falling in love

I don’t need a helping hand, cos I'm big enough to stand
I've seen all the vices that have tried to bring me down
I don’t need a helping hand cos I'm big enough to stand
I don’t need no one to tell me how to be a better man

I live on top of a mountain in Victoria, Australia. I play guitar, banjo and sing... On rough days I like Tequila shots with a beer chaser.
