Strait, George - I Found Jesus On The Jailhouse Floor Lyrics




There once was a time when I was dead inside
I cussed the Lord for the day I was born
And prayed to the Devil to die
Just when I thought the Devil had won
Someone opened up the door
The King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor

[Chorus:]
Now, he broke the chains that bound me, and now I'm free
Today I'm right where Mama
Prayed I'd be
I'm down on my knees
Now I believe
What Mama knew for sure
He's King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor

Now, if you're in trouble friend, let me tell you what to do
I'll tell you what he's done for me
And I know what he'll do for you
It makes no difference what you've done
You've a friend in the One that I adore
The King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor

[Chorus]

He's King of kings
Lord of lords
I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor

    There once was a time when I was dead inside
    I cussed the Lord for the day I was born
    And prayed to the Devil to die
    Just when I thought the Devil had won
    Someone opened up the door
    The King of kings ,Lord of lords
    I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor.

    Now, he broke the chains that bound me,
    And now I'm free
    Today I'm right where Mama Prayed I'd be
    I'm down on my knees Now I believe
    What Mama knew for sure
    He's King of kings, Lord of lords
    I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor.

    You've a friend in the One that I adore
    The King of kings, Lord of lords
    I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor.

    Now, he broke the chains that bound me,
    And now I'm free
    Today I'm right where Mama Prayed I'd be
    I'm down on my knees
    Now I believe What Mama knew for sure
    He's King of kings ,Lord of lords
    I found Jesus on the jailhouse floor.

    I love George strait

  11. Michael Trindall

    This song sums up me to the max..Finding Jesus on the addiction floor..My favorite song ever..

  12. LCJ 956

    That song just hit the nail in the head. I was literally on the floor in a jail, not knowing of the 11hr ride ahead of me being handcuffed(wrists to waist)in the back of a aluminum dog catcher style transport truck. It was me and some Black guy. No matter where or situation, Jesus will make things right.

  13. Conway Red Bear

    I found Jesus on the Jail house floor back in 2007 never turned back once still living for the King of kings and Lord of lords, my testimony Amen Praise the Lord.

    Martin Lehfeldt

    Glad your doing better now. Keep living right.

  14. Sylvia Payton

    "Honkytonkville" sang by Texas Country Musician, King George Harvey Strait, my favorite Musician of all time. Unfortunately, he is not yet a family member of "The Grand Ole Opry." How come?.

    Carol Feriani

    HE chose not to.

  15. Katie Laughlin

    The funny story is I'm 11 and I've been on stage with George strait because my uncle plays the drums for him his name is mike and earl clark is my great aunts ex husband

    Hershel Meadows

    Katie Laughlin Mike is a cool dude he is a close friend of mine.

    I am the inmate Chaplin of the Gordon County Jail in Calhoun, Ga. I only heard about this song 2 weeks ago. Since that time I have called the radio stations in and around Calhoun asking them to play this song. Last night at the Jail Service. Someone said this is OUR new theme song

    Rick Cameron

    I am singing this song in Sharbot Lake Canada on March 20 so looking to see the reaction to it

  21. Penny Bailey

    The jukebox at the Waffle House in Tillmans Corner, AL this is the #1 song and has been for years....PTL!!!

    @Matt Kinney If you're the right Matt (I can't tell with new comments), I'm glad you like my videos!  I'll be sure to check out your channel; they are two of my favorites.  I did see George Strait a couple of times, most recently about five years ago. I'd like to see him on this last tour, but it's been tough getting tickets. Lots of scalpers I suppose. Have fun!  I hope you get some good videos!

    Charles Britto

    I love all his songs great musician God bless him and his family.

  23. Matt Kinney
