Coming In Late

When a man drags in late first thing heís going to say you mad?
No I ainít mad matter of a fact I had a good night,
I got to sleep all over the bed,
I didnít have to lye there and listen to you beg.
You gave me a free ticket thank ya,
For a least a week I can do what I want to do.

I donít have to cook I donít have to clean,
Most of all I have an excuse to be mean,
I can call you all those names that I want to say,
You donít have to ask me about the way I behave.

I use to wonder where you been,
Now I donít care I just dream,
What ever fits into my thoughts ya itís true,
You were not with me and bless the Lord I wasnít with you.

Coming in late all times of the night,
You must be a fool to think it was right,
But I bet you one thing it want be a fight,
I use to stay up late and watch the clock,
Matter of fact from time to time I would listen for the lock,
I would say dirty words that I didnít mean,
Especially when you would come home broke,
Nothing in your pocket but string.

Smelling like you worked at a beer factory all night,
I know where ever you slept something was not right,
Now when you leave I smile and take a bow,
That poor ole soul of his,
Has got to get saved somehow.
I donít know what heís going to do,
But Satan is surely using you,

Thank God for his saving grace,
Child when you donít come home,
I donít even break my pace,
Leaving this house in a terrible rush,
You canít say nothing best thing for you to do is hush,
Be quiet let the Lord work this thing out,
Heís the only one keeping me in tack,
If He didnít have me right about now,
You and I would both be off track.

I use to worry if you had been out with a woman are not,
But if she can deal with you,
Feel free to change your route,
Matter of a fact I will shake her hand,
Bless your heart child you can have this man.

I will decorate your next wedding make it cute,
It will be her dealing with you,
Sheíll probably be like me at first,
Pulling her hair out and biting her nails,
Some times bless her heart she will feel like sheís having a spell.

Trying to ask me you mad,
Lord please move Satan out of the way,
Before nobody has to deal with him for the rest of the day,
Matter of a fact just let me pray,

Lord lead me and guide me Iím mad right now,
I donít want to hurt this man,
Now Father Iím doing the best I can.
I done told him to move heís on the bottle,
Lord you and I know his mind ainít right,
Please help before I loose sight,
I feel kinda sorry for him, because I use to care,
But when I needed him the most the man wasnít there
So Father please here my plea,
I am praying for him to right now not just me.

I remember I use to try and talk to him about help,
Then I found out he wasnít trying to help self,
In order to be helped you have to want it,
You canít just sit down and enjoy it.

He donít care whether nobodies happy but him,
Matter of a fact heís going to stay out late again,
Heís living in a world of sin,
When youíre sinning and coming short,
You donít have a caring heart,
Some mess up and try to change,
Others do it because of the fame,
But God gonna fix it Heíll work it out,
I know he will I donít have any doubt.

Thank the Lord I have a good mind,
All those fleshly things I have left behind,
I do my best to live for Christ,
I do my best to have a peaceful life.

Ya I use to stay out late,
I did all these things to,
But Lord you removed all those things when I met you.
What peace I live in I donít want to brag,
But Lord youíre the best friend I have ever had.

You have never made me mad,
When I am down you lift me up,
It took a while because I had to learn in you, to put all trust.

So when somebody does me wrong and ask me if I am mad mad,
Father please step in I canít control what I do and say,
Lord I am trusting you will lead the way.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
