From a Saint to a Sinner

Cat. #1106 (MFH #771) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on April 9, 1970

You put a halo of wings around me
An' now, you say, I have gone bad
But you were busy with your business n' brew
An' I lost th wing an' halo I had

You say I sent from saint to sinner
But you cain't blame me, for it all
You were th feature, I was th beginner
You don't know how it hurt me to fall

You didn't think that your angel could wander
But I just like flesh an' bone
While you had your drinking with you buddy an' business
I guess I had to much time alone
