The Outlaw's Prayer - The Hit Crew

You know i worked the big packet show

In fort worth saturday night


We had all day sunday to rest and relax

Before i caught another flight

So i decided to walk downtown

An get myself a little fresh air

Before long i found myself in front of a big church

On the corner of the square

Boy i could hear that singin way out in the street

It wure was a beautiful sound

So i just walked up the steps

An opened the door an started to go inside an sit down

But before i could a young man walked over to me

An said excuse me sir

But i can't let you in with that big black hat

Those jeans that beard an long hair

So i just left went back outside


Sat down on that curb

An i thought to myself that's the house of the lord

That guy's got a hell of a nerve

Tellin me i can't worship anywhere i please

So right there in front of that church

I just knelt down on my knees

I said lord i know i don't look like much


But i didn't think you'd mind

I just wanted to be with your people lord

It's been a long time

A while ago i saw a wino over there in the alley

All bent over in tears

An i thought how one stained glass window from this church


Would feed his family for years

Then there's those fine cars parked outside

Too many for me to count

Made me think how people walked for days

To hear your sermon on the mountain

Then there's those fine ladies in the choir lord

Singin like they really love it

Hell last night they were dancin on the front row of my show


Drinkin beer and screamin sing shove it

You know even john the baptist

Wouldn't be welcome in this place

With his coat made of camel hair

An sandals on his feet an a long beard on his face

You know lord when you come back to get your children

An take em beyond the clouds

To live forever in heaven with ya

Well i'd sure hate to be in this crowd

You know lord i'm not perfect

Some even call me no account

But i'll tell you i believe a man is judged

By what's in his heart and not his bank account

So if this is what religion is

A big car a suit a tie

Then i might as well forget it lord

Cause i can't qualify

Oh by the way lord right before they kicked me out

Didn't i see a picture of you

With sandals an a beard


Believe you had long hair too

Well this is paycheck signing off

I'll be seein you lord i hope
