Need lyrics and chords to I Choose To Be A Christian

Help...Does anyone know the the lyrics and chords to the song "I Choose To Be A Christian." I remember Loretta Earl singing that song (early 90's) but not sure who the actual artist is. I've tried some of the webistes I'm familiar with and cannot find it anywhere. I know some of the words...

Chorus
I choose to be a christian
I choose to be like him
???????????
this is how I want to live
You decide for you and I'll decide for me
the choice is mine this how I choose to live

I'm not even sure if the above is correct. I would appreciate it very much if anyone could help me with this.

I met a man the other day
He looked and me and said
I've seen your kind so many times before
You can't do this, You can't do that
Your bound by rules and restrictions
What a dreary life your Christians must observe
(can't remember the rest of this verse right off hand... there was something about "I can chew & dip, snort & cuss, party all night until the sun comes up but there's better things in life I'd rather do... something like that)


I choose to be a Christian
I choose to be like him
Ain't noboby makin' me do it (The last time through they said "Ain't nobody holdin' a gun to my head)
This is how I want to live
You decide for you and I'll decide for me
the choice is mine this what I choose to be

I did some searching and couldn't find any.

I'll let you know if I find anything... but so far... no go.

I have searched too and can't find anything either. I have a young lady that wants to sing that song - she isn't scheduled to sing for a couple of weeks so I have some time to find it and practice playing before she sings. Again thanks!

Do any of your musicians play by ear?

It shouldn't be too hard to pick out.

Here you go, I just noticed this thread or I would have postred this for you before. My sister in law recorded this a few years back.

I CHOOSE TO BE A CHRISTIAN
1.
I MET A MAN THE OTHER DAY WHO LOOKED AT ME AND SAID
SO MANY TIMES IíVE SEEN YOUR KIND BEFORE
HE SAID YOU CANíT DO THIS YOU CANíT DO THAT
YOUíRE BOUND BY RULES AND RESTRICTIONS
OH WHAT A DREARY LIFE YOU CHRISTIANS MUST OBSERVE
WELL I LOOKED HIM IN THE EYE AND I SAID YOUíRE WRONG
HEY I CAN DO ANYTHING THAT WILL TURN ME ON
I CAN SMOKE TILL MY EYES TURN RED AND MY FACE TURNS BLUEí
I CAN CHEW AND DIP AND I CAN SNORT AND PUFF
HEY I CAN PARTY AND DRINK UNITL THE SUN COMES UP
BUT THERE ARE BETTER THINGS IN LIFE IíD RATHER DO

CHO.
YOU SEE I CHOOSE TO BE A CHRISTION
I CHOOSE TO BE LIKE HIM
THEREíS NOBODY MAKIN ME DO IT THIS IS HOW I LOVE TO LIVE
YOU DECIDE FOR YOU IííLL DECIDE FOR ME
BUT SEE THE CHOICE IS MINE
AND THIS IS WHAT I CHOOSE TO BE

2.
WELL I MUST ADMIT THAT FROM TIME TO TIME
THE THOUGHT OF HEAVEN KEEPS ME TOWING THE LINE
THAT THE LORD IS COMING SOUNDS TO GOOD TO ME TRUE
BUT IF IT ALL WAS JUST A FAIRYTALE
IF THERE WAS NO HEAVEN AND THERE WAS NO HELL
IíD STILL BE HAPPY LIVING LIKE I DO

3.
SO DONíT LOOK AT ME IN SYMPATHY
AND THINK THAT IíVE BEEN CHEATED
FROM DOIN ALL THOSE THINGS THAT YOU CALL FUN
CAUSE SOME NIGHT WHEN YOUíRE GETTING DOWN
ON THAT DARKER SIDE OF TOWN
THIS CHOICE IíVE MADE WILL BE LIFTING ME OUT OF HERE

Thanks alot! I didn't realize there was other verses. I haven't heard it for about 14 years or so. Chords would be great...sometimes I can play by ear if the song is simple and sometimes I don't hear everything - certain chords.
