Baby Out Of Wedlock
Words and Music by: Larry Norman I had a baby out of wedlock Her old man got me in a headlock I was an unwed father But don't bother feeling sorry for me. I took a lot of LSD I smoked a lot of marja-weenie But it did not help me It did not set me free. Jesus, why'd You go and do it? Why'd You help a guy like me? You saved me, You forgave me And I swear You set me free. Ah, You took away my problems One by one I guess You knew what You was doing When You sent Your Son. You know the way that I've been living Has been taking without giving And I hurt a lot of people And I lost my friends. I spent a little time in prison But I know the Lord has risen And I'll never need To be locked up again. But Jesus, why'd You go and do it? Why'd You help a guy like me? You saved me, You forgave me And I swear You set me free. Ah, You took away my problems One by one I guess You knew what You was doing When You sent Your Son I think You knew what You was doing When You sent Your Son.
