lyrics

AMEN

My paycheck keeps running out
Before the week is through
I’m having trouble putting gas into my car
And the winter heating bills are coming soon

I went down to see the man at the bank
Filled out the papers for a loan
Just put his hands up saying “nothing I can do,
trouble is the only thing you own.”

When a man can’t help you , Amen can
Amen can pull you through
Amen is stronger than a man
Got to Say amen, amen

I wrote a letter to my congressman
begging for a hand
Got back an autographed picture of him
Signed with a rubber stamp


Preacher man, will I live long enough?
Can I get a guarantee
For one dance with my little girl on her wedding night ?
He said, son, It’s not up to me

When a man can’t help you , Amen can
Amen can pull you through
Amen is stronger than a man
Say amen, amen

Amen (Amen)
Amen (Amen)
Stronger than a man (Amen)

Amen (Amen)
Ament (Amen)
Sometimes you’ve got to say (Amen)
