"Good Religion" as written by and John Chelew The Blind Boys Of Alabama....
So glad I got good religion.
So glad I got good religion.
So glad I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

Ain't you glad I got good religion.
Ain't you glad I got good religion.
Ain't you glad I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

My day was Monday,
When I got good religion.
My day was Monday,
When I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

My day was Tuesday,
When I got good religion.
My day was Tuesday,
When I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.
My day was Wednesday,
When I got good religion.
My day was Wednesday,
When I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

My day was Thursday,
When I got good religion.
My day was Thursday,
When I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

My day was Friday,
When I got good religion.
My day was Friday,
When I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

So glad I got good religion.
So glad I got good religion.
So glad I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

Ain't you glad I got good religion.
Ain't you glad I got good religion.
Ain't you glad I got good religion.
My feet been taken out the miry clay.

    General CommentI may have spelled marley clay incorrectly, and I'm not really sure what it is. (I couldn't find anything that places it in a religious context, although I gather the information exists somewhere.) I believe it is a mixture of clay, sand, shell pieces, and limestone, and that it's soft and can be molded by hand. Interpreting the song? It's difficult w/o understand the relevance of marley (or marly) clay. S/he's got "good religion," though. That one's a given:)
