CHURCH SONG: Words, words, words: they mean everything in a song. This track is your granddad saying, “If you don’t have time to read the Bible, find a church song you can sing.” Simple guitars and traditional country production make this one to add to your hymnal on the next Sunday morning.
Well I remember my grand-dad one night at the table sippin' on straight black coffee when supper was through. Talkin' 'bout the good old days, makin' every story sound true. Then he looked right through me and said; When I look back now at all the places I've been, the people I've hurt with my share of sin. You know I can't do right if I just don't believe. Since I don't read the Bible, I found a church song I can sing. That summer in Saigon I turned 19 years, starin' down a cold steel barrel at another man's fear. Prayin' I was back at home workin' some land of my own, what I did back then got me here. When I look back now at all the places I've been, the people I've hurt with my share of sin. You know I can't survive if I just don't believe. Since I don't read the Bible, I found a church song I can sing. Well it took a little time with your grandmother gone to find my place again in what was our home. 'Cause when your whole damn world leaves you alone, all you've got is that certain song. Lord knows I will sing. Yeah-e-yeah. So I got a little church song just for me.
