You Knew What You Were Doing
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. You know, You took away my problems One by one I guess You knew what You was doing When You sent Your Son. Whoa-whoa-whoa-o-whoa! Yeah, yeah, yeah! You know the way that I was living You know, you know, you know You know the way that I was living It was like 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. Don't let 'em keep you down! 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. You know You took away my problems One by one I guess You knew what You were doing When You sent Your Son. Jesus, why'd You go and do it? Why'd You do it Why'd You help a guy like me? I don't deserve it You saved me You forgave me And I swear You set me free You set me free. 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 tried Speed I tried some Marja-weenie It never helped me Never even came close To set me free. Jesus, why'd You go and do it? You helped a guy like me You saved me You forgave me And I swear You set me free. You know You took away my problems One by one I guess You knew what You was doing When You sent Your Son I guess You knew what You was doing When You sent Your Son. You done all that for me Yes you did.
