lyrics

Hell, I’m a saint but I still sin
Oh, Lordy, there I go again!
I live my life half in the night, half in the day
There’s good and bad in all of us
So heap the gold and sweep the dust
And keep the light beside my bed aflame

I’ve been amiss and I’ve been turned around
I’ve been lost with no hope of being found
A little spit and a little mud, I was blind but here’s the rub
My hope comes up from the ground

Put your crooked heart away
Keep that lying tongue at bay
So I may die to live another day

I’ve got shame built up behind my eyes
A new perspective, it don't take much time
My folks said, "go ask my son", but I tell you he's the one
My hope comes up on the horizon line

Put your crooked heart away
Keep that lying tongue at bay
So I may die to live another day

When you’re bored of North American roads
When church is dead and this house ain’t no home
I feel bad for you son, but your days are not yet done
The sun it shines for you and you alone

Put your crooked heart away
Keep that lying tongue at bay...

I’ll put my crooked heart away
I’ll keep my lying tongue at bay
So I may die to live another day

Hell, I’m a saint but I still sin
Oh, Lordy, there I go again!
I live my life half in the night, half in the day
There’s good and bad in all of us
So heap the gold and sweep the dust
And keep the light beside my bed aflame
