      Lyrics for Ty England - "Backslider's Prayer"

      He said "I know this ain't the time or place
      Bur Lord I need to talk"
      In a business suit in a corner booth
      In a crowded little restaurant
      We all tried not to listen
      We all tried not to look
      But a whole room full of customers
      And the waitress and the cook
      All stopped what we were doin'
      When he bowed his head
      In that silence we heard every word he said

      "I been tryin' to do things my way
      Down here on life's highway
      Slippin' slidin' sideways
      'Tween no way and nowhere
      If I could only gain a foothold
      Up there on your high road
      Lord if you hear me help me
      I'll do anything you tell me to
      All I've got to offer you is this
      Backslider's prayer

      Well the waitress made the first move
      When she filled his coffee cup
      She said "You ain't alone here mister
      You're speakin' for the rest of us"
      I heard some scattered "amens"
      And a couple of "I've been there's"
      Then things got back to normal
      The dishes and the silverwate
      Were clangin' in the kitchen
      Like an angel's band
      As I took my place in line
      To shake his hand ('cause)

      "I been tryin' to do things my way
      Down here on life's highway
      Slippin' slidin' sideways
      'Tween no way and nowhere
      If I could only gain a foothold
      Up there on your high road
      Lord if you hear me help me
      I'll do anything you tell me to
      All I've got to offer you is this
      Backslider's prayer

      If I could only gain a foothold
      Up there on your high road
      Lord if you hear me help me
      I'll do anything you tell me to
      All I've got to offer you is this
      Backslider's prayer
