About “I’m A Saint”
We may be different in some ways, but we are also the same as others. We can be special to one person but to others, we can just be nothing. Moreover, we can be sinners and saints at the same time. “I’m A Saint” is a song that tells the life of a man who lives ordinarily just like most people do. He goes to church like most people, yet sometimes he skips church because he has to do something. The narrator is just the same as most of us who has a job but spends most of our money until nothing is left. The best part of the song is,
“I was born a sinner but my Momma thinks I’m a saint”
Those words are well put together. It makes the narrator of the song or anyone listening to it realize that despite having done many sinful things there is someone who thinks that we are still perfect.
“I’m A Saint” is a song recorded by Mark Chesnutt in 2004. In addition, the song is one of the singles included on his album Savin’ the Honky Tonk. Jason Sellers, Tony Martin, and Jimmy Ritchey wrote the song.
