Ah, nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
Tryin' to raise my soul to light 

Ah, have a bible in my home
Have a bible in my home
Tryin' to raise my soul to light 

 Taught me how to read
 Taught me how to read
Tryin' to raise my soul to light 
Nobody's fault but mine.

Oh Lord, nobody's fault but mine
Tryin' to raise my soul to light 
Ah have a bible in my home
Have a bible in my home
Tryin' to raise my soul to light 
Oh, buddy she taught me how to read
 Buddy she taught me how to read
Tryin' to raise my soul to light.

Ah, Lord, Lord, nobody's fault but mine
 Bible and my soul tonight 
And sister she taught me how to read
 Sister she taught me how to read
 Bible and my soul tonight.

Ah, no, no, nobody's fault but mine.
 Bible and my soul tonight.
Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
Tryin' to raise my soul to the light 
Nobody's fault but mine

Got a bible in my home
Got a bible in my home
Tryin' to raise my soul to the light 
Nobody's fault but mine - yeah!

 Sister she taught me to roll
My sister she taught me to roll
I roll along the line
Nobody's fault but mine

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
I'll raise my soul to the light 
Nobody's fault but mine
Take it on, take it on

I got a monkey on my back
I gotta monkey on my back, back, back
I'll raise my soul to the light 
Nobody's fault but mine - yeah

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
I'll raise my soul to the light 
Nobody's fault but mine
Whoo!

Naw.
Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
I'll raise my soul to the light 
Nobody's fault but mine

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
Tryin' raise my soul to the light 
Nobody's fault but mine
Oh!
