i do believe lyrics – waylon jennings

i do believe

in my own way i’m a believer
in my own way right or wrong
i don’t talk too much about it
it’s something i keep working on
i don’t have too much to build on
my faith has never been that strong

there’s a man in that old building
he’s a holy man, they say
he keeps talking about tomorrow
while i keep struggling with today
he preaches h*ll, fire and brimstone
and heaven seems so far away

i do believe in a higher power
one that loves us one and all
not someone to solve our problems
or to catch me when i fall
he gave us all a mind to think with
and to know what’s right or wrong
he is that inner spirit
that keeps us strong

in my own way i’m a believer
but not in voices i can’t hear
i believe in a loving father
one i never have to fear
that i should live life at it’s fullest
just as long as i am here
