FORGIVE ME LORD (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1999 Make my world a better place to be Remove these chains and set me free Give my life one reason to begin Forgive me Lord for I have sinned. Take my hand and lead me as you choose It seems we ain't got much to lose Give this place one season without shame Forgive me Lord I've sinned again. I been down on my luck, as a matter of fact I've even been chased Drifting along, singin' a song For the whole human race. I been caught in the act, as a matter of fact I'm even well known Floatin' on by with a laugh and a sigh On the road that leads home. I got no more time left to roam, if you love me…. Take this world and build it as you please With a little help from the likes of me Keep it safe from harm and make it pure Forgive the rich and save the poor. Like the dust on the wind, I've been taken again By my foolish pride Drifting along, singin' a song That's how I get by. I been caught in the act, as a matter of fact I've even been chased Floatin' on by with a laugh and a sigh For the whole human race. I got no more time left to waste, if you love me…. Make my world a better place to be Remove these chains and set me free Give my face a different point of view Forgive us Lord if we run to you. (bridge) If you love me…. Make my world a better place to be Remove these chains and set me free Give my life one reason to begin Forgive me Lord for I have sinned. Give my life one reason to begin Forgive me Lord for I have sinned. (Transcribed by David Story - April 2013)
