You Can't Do Wrong and Get By

This song is by The Delmore Brothers and appears on the compilation American Roots: A History of American Folk Music (1999).

Oh you can't do wrong and get by
No matter how hard you may try
So just do what you please and try to feel at ease
For you can't do wrong and get by

No hypocrite can do wrong and get by
No matter how hard you may try
Salvation you say you've got but God knows you've not
So you can't do wrong and get by

No liar can do wrong and get by
No matter how hard you may try
For when you have to die you can't tell a single lie
And you can't do wrong and get by

No drunkard can do wrong and get by
No matter how hard you may try
When you get so many drinks you may get by you think
But you can't do wrong and get by
