The Sinner

(I have been experimenting with blues lyrics lately. This is one example of what I have produced. Comments are welcome.)

Poor sinner, he tries to do what is right.
Poor sinner, he tries to do what is right.
Forget me Lord,
Focus on him tonight.

My prayer goes for him this morning.
My prayer goes for him this morning.
Father,
Please give him a scorning.

Drunk on booze, barely holding down a job.
Drunk on booze, barely holding down a job.
Road to ruin,
Found him beaten and robbed.

Scripture says much about the foolish ways.
Scripture says much about the foolish ways.
Their path is not long,
Like the sinner's days.
