"I Made a Mistake" as written by and Willie Nelson Buddy Cannon....
I made a mistake Lord, I thought I was wronged
I said "take it then, and 'git," she said "got it, and gone"
So I'm writing it all down in this stupid ol' song
I made a mistake Lord, I thought I was wronged

I'm a lot like Ol' Ripley and I'll believe it or not
I told a big lie Lord, and then I forgot
I thought I was Jesus and believe me, I'm not
I thought I was right and I was wrong by a lot

I feel a little like Elvis when he was alone
I made another mistake Lord, I thought I was wronged

I made a mistake Lord and it's all on me
I wouldn't admit it but it's easy to see
So if anyone's prayin', a request I would make
Is to mention my name 'cause I made a mistake

I'm a lot like Ol' Ripley and I'll believe it or not
I told a big lie Lord, and then I forgot
I thought I was Jesus and believe me, I'm not
I thought I was right and I was wrong by a lot

I feel a little like Elvis when he was alone
I made another mistake Lord, I thought I was wronged
I made another mistake Lord, I thought I was wronged
