    I'm gonna change
    Cause Lord I wanna be free
    I can't ever be happy with all these chains thats bindin' me
    I'm gonna change
    Cause now its not just me
    I got a son to look after and he sure looks up to me
    I'm gonna change
    all the cussin' and fightin
    all the evil thoughts
    all the dirty looks
    I'm gonna start back going to church
    and read more educational books
    I'm gonna change
    Cause Lord I can't sleep at night
    Knowing the life I'm living just ain't right
    I wanna do things the way I was taught they should be done
    And next time I'm in trouble I won't turn my back and run
    I wanna change the way I say things
    and how I pray to you
    Cause if you stepped away from me
    Lord what would I do
    I'd fall and there would be no one to brace me from the pain
    No one to medicate me
    and make me walk again
    So Lord I'll change
    Not only for me
    But Lord I'll change for you
    Cause Lord without your mercy
    Who else would see me through

    And let the church say amen. You were certainly telling truth here, and I like the way you brought it.
