Well he could almost taste the money but he was sitting in a den of  
thieves. 
D                G      C                           G      D 
Looking for the great awakening   trying to find a way to leave. 
     G             Am    G/B              C 
But that's when he got religion, and the light went on inside. 
        G/D      C/E      G/F                  C              C/D   G  
(intro) 
He said somebody up there likes me.  Now he's working for the holy  
guide. 
 
 
 
        G                                          C

He got drunk but he don't remember that he'd been drinking in a bar  
downtown. 
         D                  G       C                     G     D 
When he thought he heard a choir of angels singing in the Tiki Lounge. 
     G             Am    G/B              C 
And that's when he got religion   from no salesman on TV. 
       G/D        C/E             G/F 
Just a tap on the shoulder in the parking lot. 
          C            C/D     G 
He still drinks but he does believe. 
 
 
 
Chorus: 
   C          G      F         E 
Religion, you do the best you can. 
C                G                          D                G 
We all make the same mistakes, we're gonna wind up with the man. 
   C             G      F         E 
Religion, oh you do the best you can. 
C                G                          D               G  (play  
intro) 
We all make the same mistakes, we're gonna wind up with the man. 
 
 
 
         G                             C                         G 
She was silent as he paid her but the thanks she got was next to none. 
            D          G         C                            G       D 
And as her car pulled out of the motel, she felt the presence of  
someone. 
     G              Am    G/B              C 
And that's when she got religion   in the front of a compact Ford. 
       G/D    C/E           G/F                  C                C/D        
G 
Just a gentle voice on the stereo.  Now she's a working girl who loves  
the Lord.
