(Kristofferson)

Informação:

Kris Kristofferson escreveu e gravou pela primeira vez Why Me Lord (como Why Me) em 1973. A sua gravação (Monument 8571) alcançou o 16º lugar na tabela Hot 100 da Billboard e 28º na tabela Easy-Listening. As vendas ultrapassaram o milhão de exemplares.

 

Elvis interpretou Why Me Lord ao vivo em 20 de março de 1974, no Mid-South Coliseum de Memphis. A RCA gravou o concerto para lançamento no LP Elvis Recorded Live on Stage in Memphis.

 

Letra:
 

(Why me Lord? What have I ever done
To deserve even one of the pleasures I've known
Tell me Lord what did I ever do to deserve loving You
And the kindness You've shown)

Lord help me Jesus I’ve wasted it
So help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I needed You so
Help me Jesus, my soul's in Your hands

(Try me Lord, if you think there's a way I can ever repay
All I've taken from You
Maybe Lord I can show someone else
What I've been through myself
On my way back to you)

Lord help me Jesus I’ve wasted it
So help me Jesus I know what I am, oh yeah
Now that I know that I needed You so
Help me Jesus, my soul's in Your hands
Jesus my soul's in Your hands
