G G6sus2 x4

G          G6sus2 D        Em
I remember Daddy held the Bible like a gun
C                                               D
Back when I was a Pentecostal gospel preacher's son 
       G        G6sus2   D          Em
And I still can see the fire and brimstone in his eyes
C                                                       D
When he preached to people in a tent repent before you die
Em                               C                  D
Me I'd sneak out back with some saintless Southern girl
Em                           C            D
And there I'd teach her the ways of this world and well I

Guess I was a way too wild
To be the child of a preacher man
Em                          C             D         G
One foot on a solid rock and one on the sinking sand

Just like the prodigal son
I guess I got way too lost
Living somewhere in between
C         D         G
The devil and the cross

I was daddy's worst nightmare by the time I turned 18
Baptised in a whiskey river on the streets of New Orleans
Where demons, drugs and rock & roll they seemed to clog my mind
And women were a weakness 4 weeks at a time
I learned the hard way what you reap is what you sew
So in silent desperation one night I headed home

Repeat Chorus

C                                     G
Daddy did more than talk the talk he walked the walk in life
D                          Em                   G
Loved me and forgave me when I came home that night
            C                          G
He said son Don't ever be ashamed for God forgives the lost
D                                                         C                                         
We all live somewhere in between the devil and the cross

Repeat Chorus
