Why Me
Kris Kristofferson
Written by Kris Kristofferson
Published by Resaca Music

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.

An error in the 5th line:
"That was worth loving you"

The line actually is, "That was worth love from you"

Which makes way more sense.

Correct. Also the third line of the chorus should be needed and not "need".
