I'm Scared (Cummings Burton)

I'm scared, Lord I'm scared, I'm terrified Never been much on religion But I sure enough would like to hear the call Said I'm scared Lordy Lord, I'm shakin', I'm petrified Never been much on religion But I sure enough just fell down on my knees Heard the choir singin' Something about good will toward men And even sleepin' in heavenly peace Stopped by to see Saint Thomas On a cold and dreary New York afternoon Something in the air was oh so rare I don't know what it was But I know that it's still right there And I'm scared... Living in confusion Searching for truth that I never found I needed something to really believe Looked toward the heavens On a dark and stormy winter afternoon Something in the air was oh so rare I'm not really sure what it was But I know for sure that it's still right there And I'm scared... I'm scared, you know I'm shakin' I'm layin' awake thinkin' about it now I'm terrified Never been much on religion But I sure enough just fell down on my knees
