about

Piano-driven, singer-songwriter stuff

lyrics

Three miles past the ball fields
And past two gas stations
Deep in the blackberry hills
You hear sweet incantations

Near the tall Jesus
On the tall mountain
With his arms open
As if he can reach down and touch you from the sky

The children play with fireflies
When Daddy's struck by white lightning
Then Mama makes it up the mountain
To stare in Jesus's eyes

She's with the tall Jesus
On the tall mountain
With his arms open
As if he can reach down and touch you from the sky

And I'll be damned if they're not saved
Oh I'll be damned if they're not saved
No I'll be damned it they're not saved
Oh I'll be damned if they're not saved

By the tall Jesus
On the tall mountain
With his arms open
As if he can reach down and touch you from the sky
