Plenty Good Room

Representative Text

Refrain:
Plenty good room, plenty good room,
plenty good room in my 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;
cause if my Lord should call on me
I wouldn't be ready to die. [Refrain]

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

3 I would not be a backslider,
I'll tell you the reason why;
cause if my Lord should call on me
I wouldn't be ready to die. [Refrain]
