Testo e musica / Lyrics and music: Bobby Bare
Album: Ain't Got Nothin' to Lose
Praise the Lord and send me the money
I'm happy you can be happy to
If you praise the Lord and send me the money
That's what Jesus wants you to do

Late one night while watchin' Columbo
I fell asleep till quarter past three
When just like a vision I thought I was dreamin'
I heard the voice of a man on TV

Praise the Lord and send me the money
I'm happy you can be happy too
If you praise the Lord and send me the money
That's what Jesus wants you to do

I sat straight up and reached for my checkbook
Trembling with guilt took my Bic pen in hand
I wrote out the figures a one and four zeroes
Went out and mailed with a note to that man

I said praise the Lord I'm sendin' the money
I surely wanna be happy like you
Praise the Lord I'm sendin' the money
If that's what Jesus wants me to do

I woke up late for work the next money
I could not believe what I'd done
Wrote a hot check to Jesus for ten thousand dollars
And my bank account only held thirty one

I got a second job at a gasoline station
I'm savin' me money to pay what I owe
I don't get much sleep 'cause I stay up late watchin'
Watchin' all the folks on the Lord's TV show

Sayin' praise the Lord and send me the money...
Praise the Lord I'm sendin' the money
