Year Three, Week Nine: “But a Prayer”

Lyrics:

I put my arms around her
and gave her a grin
She said, “Man you must be crazy
to show your face again
The door is right behind you
down the stairs
There’s nothing left here for you
but a prayer”

Sheriff threw me in his car
drove to the edge of town
Said, “If you so much as look back
I’ll turn you upside down
Boy you brought this on yourself
and fair is fair
There’s nothing left here for you
but a prayer”

My shoes are broke and the sun won’t shine
Been midnight for three weeks or more
When you look for nothing, nothing’s what you get
I can dream of her lips and the sunlight
and the water that laps at the shore
But I know that it’s better if I just forget

I saw Jesus on the roadside
carrying his burden
I told the story of my life
Boy, he couldn’t get a word in
I said, “I don’t care where you’re going
Take me there
There’s nothing left here for me
but a prayer”
I said, “I don’t care where you’re going
Take me there
There’s nothing left here for me
but a prayer”
