God's Gonna Get You
(Written by Ray Harris ©2009 SOCAN)

Well you think you're sittin' pretty, but you done somethin' shitty -
And one way or another you'll pay -
I ain't too religious but I've crossed a few a few bridges -
And the Lord works in mysterious ways -
You had a slick lawyer but you ain't no Tom Sawyer -
Nobody's gonna whitewash your fence -
'Cause God's gonna get you and so will I.

You make my trigger finger itch you sick sonofabitch -
But I wouldn't waste a bullet on you -
That'd be too quick and easy and the blood'd make me queasy -
And it serves you right to suffer - yes it do -
I know the irony is lost, but when you pay the cost -
Judgement Day'll leave a bad taste -
'Cause God's gonna get you and so will I.

CHORUS: God's gonna getcha, god's gonna getcha,
God's gonna getcha...and so will I. (x 2) + solo

I know some good old country boys who don't make a lot of noise -
And they owe me a favour or two -
They'll take you for a ride high up the mountain side -
And make a true believer out of you -
They'll leave you tied to a tree and they'll break both your knees -
And let the creatures of the forest do the rest -
'Cause God's gonna get you and so will I.

CHORUS: God's gonna getcha, god's gonna getcha,
God's gonna getcha...and so will I. (x 4)
