(Charlie Louvin - Ira Louvin)
I just steal away somewhere and pray.
Every time I do a deed I shouldn't do
Every time I say a word I shouldn't say
Let me tell you what I'd do it will bring a blessing too
If I steal away somewhere and pray.
I just steel away. I just steal away
And I ask my blessed Lord to lead the way
I just steel away, I just steal away
I just steel away somewhere and pray.
--- Instrumental ---
I'm sure God will hear and answer all my prayers
When I ask him for my blessings every day
When I'm burdened down with grief it will bring my soul relief
If I steal away somewhere and pray.
I just steel away, I just steal away
And I ask my blessed Lord to lead the way
I just steel away, I just steal away
I just steel away somewhere and pray...
