Yep. Johnny Cash ... the gratitude of an addict/alkie. Shows in his work. It's very AA to notice the progression in his life. He's all over the BB ... just like me.
Here's another one that obviously needs no redemption. Recognize the tune?
Tell me Lord,
What have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the pleasures I've known?
Help me Lord,
What did I ever do
To deserve loving You
Or the kindness You've shown?
Lord help me H P, (sic)
I've wasted it so-help me H P, (sic)
I know what I am.
Now that I know
That I've wasted it so-help me H P, (sic)
My soul's in Your hands.
(Sorry I don't remember who to credit and I'm too lazy to look it up at the moment. I'll repent of that later. Anybody know?)
I sing that one often when I'm feeling real humblated and grateful. Stll can't sing it without tearing up.
