Reformed Baptist Blues lyrics

 




Comely woman why you treating me this way?

Got religion, instead of loving now you're praying

You know I know I was everything you need

Traded good times for a reverend's guarantees

 

I 'aint no preaching man, don't know what to do (Don't know what to do)

I got those slowly sinking, reformed Baptist blues (Slowly sinking, reformed Baptist blues)

 

Now you wake me when I should be sleeping in

Drag me out to your place of worshiping

Missed the football now, six weeks in a row

It's depressing to this man from golden door

 

I 'aint no preaching man, don't know what to do (Don't know what to do)

I got those slowly sinking, reformed Baptist blues (Slowly sinking, reformed Baptist blues)

 

Absolution is a bummer I have found

Re-baptism is just another way to drown

God's salvation doesn't interest me at all

Found the answer at the bottom of a bottle

 

Now you curse me every time I tell a lie

Take my gold chain for a (?) die

Can't beseech you that our marriage is a fraud

Can't get screwed around when the other guy is God. 

 

I 'aint no preaching man, don't know what to do (Don't know what to do)

I got those slowly sinking, reformed Baptist blues (Slowly sinking, reformed Baptist blues)
