Ernest Dale Tubb (February 9, 1914 – September 6, 1984), nicknamed the Texas Troubadour, was an American singer and songwriter and one of the pioneers of country music. His biggest career hit song, "Walking the Floor Over You" (1941), marked the rise of the honky tonk style of music.

I wandered so aimless 
Life filled with sin 
I wouldn't let my dear Savior in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord I saw the light

No more darkness no more night
Now I'm so happy 
No sorrow in sight 
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Just like a blind man 
I wandered along worries and fears 
I claimed for my own
Then like a blind man 
That God gave back his sight 
Praise the Lord I saw the light
I saw the light...

I was a fool to wander and stray 
For straight is the gate and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light
I saw the light...
Praise the Lord I saw the light
