I Didn’t Know

Written by Larry Collie

VS 1
THEY WERE HAVING A SUMMER REVIVAL…AT THE CHURCH JUST ACROSS THE TRACK
I PROMISED A FRIEND I’D GO WITH HIM JUST TO GET HIM OFF MY BACK
I’D NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE… BUT WHEN WE OPENED THE DOOR
THEY WERE PRAISING AND RAISING THEIR HANDS
ALL OF THEM WERE SMILE’N …SOME WERE IN THE AISLE
AND SOME HAD EVEN STARTED TO DANCE

VS 2
I THOUGHT..DON’T GET EXCITED…THIS CAN’T LAST VERY LONG
BUT WHEN THEY STARTED TO SHOUT…THERE WASN’T A DOUBT
I KNEW THAT I’D BEEN WRONG
THEY PREACHED ABOUT HELL THEN THE SPIRIT FELL
I COULDN’T STAND THERE ANY MORE
I GRABBED MY BUDDIES SLEEVE..AND I STARTED TO LEAVE
BUT I NEVER MADE IT OUT THE DOOR

CHORUS
I DIDN’T KNOW (BASS LINE)
I DIDN’T KNOW…WHEN I SAID I’D GO THAT CONVICTION WOULD GRIP MY SOUL
I DIDN’T SEE (BASS LINE)
I DIDN’T SEE…WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO ME
AS THE TEARDROPS STARTED TO FLOW
WHAT A STORY I HEARD..WHEN THEY OPENED THE WORD
I COULDN’T LEAVE THERE LIKE I CAME
I FELL TO MY KNEES (BASS LINE)
I FELL TO MY KNEES…JESUS HEARD MY PLEAS.. AND I’VE NEVER BEEN THE SAME

TAG
I FELL TO MY KNEES…JESUS HEARD MY PLEAS.. AND I’VE NEVER BEEN THE SAME
