99. Plenty Good Room

Refrain:
There's plenty good room, plenty good room,
plenty good room in ma Father's kingdom,
Plenty good room, plenty good room,
just choose your seat and sit down.
There's plenty good room, plenty good room,
plenty good room in ma Father's kingdom,
Plenty good room, plenty good room,
just choose your seat and sit down.

1 I would not be a sinner,
I'll tell you the reason why;
I'm afraid my Lord might call on me,
and I wouldn't be ready to die. [Refrain]

2 I would not be a liar,
I'll tell you the reason why;
I'm afraid my Lord might call on me,
and I wouldn't be ready to die. [Refrain]

3 I would not be a cheater,
I'll tell you the reason why;
I'm afraid my Lord might call on me,
and I wouldn't be ready to die. [Refrain]

sit down, sit down, sit down.
