Bruce Springsteen - If I Was The Priest

Текст песни Bruce Springsteen - If I Was The Priest

Part of the hammond demos.

(recorded by allan clarke on solo album in 1975) written by bruce

Well theres a light on yonder mountain

And its calling me to shine

Theres a girl over by the water fountain

And shes asking to be mine

And aint that jesus, hes standing in the doorway

With a buckskin jacket, boots and spurs, so really fine

He says "we need you up in dodge city, son

cause theres oh so many bad boys (just too many outlaw)

Tryin to work the same line"

Well now if jesus was the sheriff and I were the priest

If my lady was an heiress and my mama was a thief

Oh and papa rode shotgun for the fargo line

Theres still too many outlaws

Tryin to work the same line

Now old sweet virgin mary

She runs the holy grail saloon

Where for a nickel theyll give you whisky

And the personally blessed balloon

And the holy ghost, hes the host with the most

He runs the burlesque show

Where they let you in for free

But oh hit you for your soul when you go

And mary serves mass on sunday

And then she sells her body on monday

To the bootlegger who will pay the highest price

But he dont know he got stuck with a loser

Marys a stone junkie, whats more shes a boozer

And shes only been made once or twice

By some kind of magic

Well things aint been the same in heaven

Ever since big bad bobby came to town

Hes been known to down eleven

And then ask for another round

And me I got scabs on my knees

From kneeling way too long

I gotta take a stand, be the man, up where you belong

And forget about the old friends and the old times

Because theres just too many new boys

Tryin to work the same line

Well now if jesus was the sheriff and I were the priest

If my lady was an heiress and my mama was a thief

Oh and papa rode shotgun for the fargo line

Theres still too many bad boys

Tryin to work the same line

Now theres a light on yonder mountain

And its calling me to shine

Theres a girl by the water fountain

And shes asking to be mine

And jesus, hes standing in the doorway

With his six-guns drawn, and ready to fan

He says "we need you son, up in dodge city"

But Im already overdue in cheyenne
