They Just Can't Take It Away

I woke up this morning with a song stuck in my head. I had dreamed about a group of old folks dressed in Bavarian costumes playing in our church. The song was such high energy that I wanted to get up on the stage with them and play drums.

The song is a basic C, F, G song with the melody:
[C]E, E, F, F#, G, E,  E, E, F, F#, G, G
[F]F, F, A, Bb, C, F,  F, F, A, Bb, C, F

The lyrics to the last line of the chorus are something like:

[?Jesus gave us some thing] they just can’t take it away
A, A, A, A, A, A, G, A, A, A, G, F, G, D, E, C.

Once again I’m worried that I might be plagiarizing some existing song. I need to record a rough take of it and run it past a few folks to see if it sounds familiar to them.
