What If You're Wrong = Original Version
Lyrics
WHAT IF YOU'RE WRONG
© 2015 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley
(Original Lyrics)

Opening chord: Dm
Key: F
BPM: 117
Verse One:
They've told you all it's the one true way
Those who don't believe must be made to pay
Your cause is just, it's the only one
The things they demand, they must be done

Chorus:
What if you're wrong in the path you take
Gambling your afterlife on the claims they make
What if you're wrong, won't you be surprised
If you've sold your soul but don't reach paradise

Verse Two:
Like a cuckoo's egg in a friendly nest
Such a simple plan, eliminate the rest
After all these years, have they never learned
If you play with fire, you will get burned

Chorus:
What if you're wrong in the path you take
Gambling your afterlife on the claims they make
What if you're wrong, would you be surprised
If you've sold your soul but don't reach paradise

Verse 3:
How would it feel from the other side
Your wife, your child - would you have cried
When you've done your deeds, when you've imposed your might
How will you free yourself from the ghosts at night

Chorus:
What if you're wrong in the path you take
Gambling your afterlife on the claims they make
What if you're wrong, would you be surprised
If you've sold your soul but don't reach paradise

Verse 3:
We all face the truth, mark my words my friend
You will be found out, at the very end
When you're judged alone, just you, just one
There will be no escape from the things you've done

Chorus:
What if you're wrong in the path you take
Gambling your afterlife on the claims they make
What if you're wrong, won't you be surprised
If you've sold your soul but don't reach paradise


What if you're wrong
What if you're wrong
What if you're wrong
