I've heard this song a while ago and googled the s**t out of all the lyrics I could remember but wasn't able find anything. Since I'm getting pretty desperate I'd appreciate some help from you guys.

The lyrics are a bit hazy in my mind (please don't mock me) but it contained some of these phrases:

Though I know it ain't right
To live my life this way
...
I've seen the best of times
I've had the best of friends
I've had it all to lose
...

The chorus went something like this:

And I've seen the light
I'm gonna give it to you - it has a variation with "show" and some other word.

And there's a kind of a climax in the end going like this (the lyrics are repeated several times):

You gotta lay right down
And close your eyes...

I'm still in doubt of many of the lyrics but that's most of what I can remember. It was a fast, major open-chord song somewhat in the style of The 13th Floor Elevators - (but I don't think it's them because google didn't show anything).

The song is called Oh, Lord, by The Brian Jonestown Massacre

Oh Lord you know it ain't right,
To live my life this way
I gotta stay up every night and feel this feeling till it goes away

You know I had my crime
And I paid my dues
I've seen the best of times
I had the best of friends
I'm pretty all to do

But now I've seen the light
I'm gonna show it to you
You gotta lay right down
You gotta close your eyes
You'll never flow right though you

'Cause I, I believe in my soul
And I always wanna feel this way so honey let the good times roll

Oh baby all night long I've been sitting beer drinking
How come it took so long
For me to change my mind
Don't know what I was thinking

But now I've seen the light
I'm wanna keep it to you
You gotta lay right down
You gotta close your eyes
You gotta let me heal you

'Cause I, I believe in my soul
And I always wanna feel this way so honey let the good times roll

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
