Watchin' Over Me

Watchin' over me when I was high
Holdin’ my hand and wipin’ my eye
Watchin’ me cheat, watchin’ me lie
Oh, watchin’ over me
 
Lookin’ back over on the damage I done
Made no kind of plan to be carryin’ on
Thought I might ought to been dead and gone
I said, oh, the damage done
 
How’m I gonna pay that debt I owe
Big red Jesus on the radio
Down on my knees after the show
I said, oh, the debt I owe
 
I learned my lesson again
Well, I learned my lesson again
Only one way to surrender
Learned my lesson again
Got to return it to sender
Leave a little light in the window
Got to remember my friend
 
Guess I got to say it’s a lovely day
Nice enough to know it could ever be so
Ready man, steady man, here I’m gonna go
I said, oh, the lovely day

Hi! Thanks for transcribing. However, this looks similar to several lyrics entries I found (and in which I didn't find trustworthy, specially the line 'Thought I might ought to been dead and gone'). Would you mind double checking it? Sorry for any incovenience.

I took the lyrics from the James Taylor Webside, if you know them better, let me know.

Well, if that is what is found in his own site, who am I to judge him for his confusing lines? :p Sorry for the inconvenience.
