Old Account Was Settled Long Ago (Cash Johnny)

Well there was a time on Earth, when in the books of Heaven An old account was standing, for sins yet unforgiven My name was at the top, and many things below But I went unto the keeper, and settled it long ago. Chorus Long ago (down on my knees) Long ago (I settled it all) Yes, the old account was settled long ago, (Hallelujah!) And the record's clear today, Cause He washed my sins away, And the old account was settled long ago. Well the old account was large, and growin? everyday And I was always sinnin', and I never tried to pray But when I looked to him and saw such pain and woe Well I went unto the keeper, and settled it long ago Chorus Now sinner seek the Lord, repent of all your sins 'Cause this He has commanded, if you would enter in And then if you should live a hundred years below Well you know you got it settled, 'cause you settled it long ago Chorus
