"Something Got Hold Of Me" lyrics

Something Got Hold Of Me

At first when I heard of
Some people who claim
That the old-time religion was real
I said "I'll go down
Take a look at the crowd
For just that weak-minded I feel"

I walked up the steps
And I peeked in the door
But the devil said
"Don't you go in"
But I said, "It won't hurt me
I'll just step inside
And I'll set as far back as I can"

But something got a hold of me
Praise God
Yes something got a hold of me
Oh, Lord
I went there to fight
But I'll tell you that night
God certainly got a hold of me

They sang like they meant it
They all clapped their hands
I said, "It's commotion, that's all"
"When they get down to pray
I'll just get up and leave
For I don't wanta be seen here at all"

But I bowed that time
He got started to preach
And he looked straight down at me
He told everybody
How mean that I was
He didn't talk like he thought much of me

I sat in my seat
Just thinking it over
And then they all started to pray
The fire fell from heaven
I fell to the floor
I prayed there and God had his way

For something got a hold of me
Praise God
Yes something got a hold of me
Oh, Lord
I went there to fight
But I'll tell you that night
God certainly got a hold of me
