LaVern Baker was born Dolores Williams in 1929. At the end of the 1940s she won her first recording contract with Okeh Records and later moved to Atlantic. There she scored high with Tweedle Dee in 1955. Saved was both written and produced by Leiber and Stoller and her recording was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rhythm and Blues Recording of 1960. Further success was limited, however, and Baker's last chart entry was in 1966 in a duet with Jackie Wilson, Think Twice. LaVern Baker died in 1997.

I used to smoke

I used to smoke, drink, and dance the hoochie-coo

I used to smoke and drink
Smoke and drink and dance the hoochie-coo
Whoa yeah
But now I'm standin' on this corner
Prayin' for a-me and you
Ah hah

That's why I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
People let me tell you 'bout a, kingdom come

You know I'm saved (saved)
I'm saved (saved)
I can preach until you're, deaf and dumb
I'm in that soul-savin' army
Beatin' on that big a-bass drum
Whoa yeah
