"Why Me Lord?" as written by Anthony St. Aubyn Kelly, Orville Burrell and Rickardo George Ducent....
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
That was worth loving you
Or 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've need you so
Help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.

Tell me Lord, if you think there's a way
I can try to 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
Now that I know that I've need you so
Help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.

    General CommentThis is such an amazing song, too underrated me think!
    I adore Elvis as a singer and person! I find it a shame how so many fancied him... It's a shame that girls go insane over famous people and not rather see the person that is inside them and what they bring with their souls. I wonder if this is a part of what destroyed Elvis and many?
