week twentythree: holy rider pt. 2

holy rider pt. 2

hunker down you said to me
there’s a preacher in the country that i wanted you to see

sunday morning hallelujah
saturday liquor like a river running through you

preacher said i’m a holy rider
if you’re going out i’m a set your fire

he grew his roses in the garden
grew his marijuana in the kitchen closet

the police shot a thousand dead
if you’re taking a body you better be in a bed

preacher said i’m a holy rider
if you’re going out i’m a set your fire

sawbones cut out the baby
drove back home in a new mercedes

and yeah i’m asking you to pay
but keep it if you need it i’ve been doing okay 

preacher said i’m a holy rider
if you’re going out i’m a set your fire

ah my brown eyes
see a little better in the middle of the night

and if you ever get a bit of burning in you for me
make a little love and then you call me in the morning

preacher said i’m a holy rider
if you’re going out i’m a set your fire
