Why Me, Lord?

It is mysterious how anyone could write the words to a song like this without knowing the Lord...

I do not know Kris Kristopherson. I know he was a helicopter pilot; had heard that he was in Nam, but on further investigation find he left the army in 1965 and, at least in the checking I was able to do, did not go to Viet Nam (nor, unlike some, did he ever claim to have gone..)

I don't concur with a lot of his political views.

But I resonate with this old song.

And still wonder how he could write it if he is not a believer (and I don't know either way).

You'll note he has some significant "back up" artists:

Jack, I found this link to utube of him telling how he came to write the song.
Very interesting.
Thanks for all your posts,
