We could wash our hands of most anything
We could wash our hands of most anything
I inherited my fathers sin
I inherited my fathers sin
I was born and raised in the midst of it
I was born and raised in the midst of it
Before a preacher spoke those words in vain
Before a preacher spoke those words in vain
And holy men would bow their head
And holy men would bow their head
For I was a I am
For I was a I am
The older son of Abraham
The older son of Abraham
The day I drowned in fire and storm
The day I drowned in fire and storm
I found out, what I'd always known
I found out, what I'd always known
I still remember, I still see
I still remember, I still see
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
When pain didn't rain and love was king
When pain didn't rain and love was king
My daddy was a gambler, drinking man
My daddy was a gambler, drinking man
Showed his love with the back of his hand
Showed his love with the back of his hand
Never saw him smile, not a flicker of graze
Never saw him smile, not a flicker of graze
I think he buried him with momma in a Tennesse clay
I think he buried him with momma in a Tennesse clay
The day I drowned in fire and storm
The day I drowned in fire and storm
I found out, what I'd always known
I found out, what I'd always known
And I still remember, I still see
And I still remember, I still see
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
When pain didn't reign and love was king
When pain didn't reign and love was king
The day I drowned in fire and storm
The day I drowned in fire and storm
I found out, what I'd always known
I found out, what I'd always known
And I still remember, I still see
And I still remember, I still see
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
When pain didn't reign and love was king
When pain didn't reign and love was king
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
A heart that trusts and avoids that sadness
Back when pain didn't reign and love was king
Back when pain didn't reign and love was king
