Reverend Grey ©2016 Karen Potje

Reverend Grey came yesterday with his Bible and a cross
Old widow ladies here to pray. They’re sorry for my loss
They put clean clothes on the body, but it’s never gonna wash
’Cause my daddy did not sanctify their God

Reverend Grey said, “One more angel called up to the sky”
Reverend Grey said, “One more angel got his wings to fly”
Good Lord needed one more angel. Is that why my daddy died?
But my Daddy, he don’t fly by Jesus’ side

You don’t know my Daddy from Adam
You don’t know my daddy from Cain
You holy rollers, hymns and hellfire. Goddamn.
Well “Goddamn Christ”, that’s all my daddy said in Jesus’ name

Reverend Grey said we were angels before we fell
And Lucifer God’s prideful fallen archangel
Daddy sitting at the hand of God. Well that don’t sit too well
’Cause my Daddy’d sooner march straight down to hell

You don’t know my Daddy from Adam
You don’t know my daddy from Cain
You holy rollers, hymns & hellfire. Goddamn!
Well “Goddamn Christ”, that’s all my daddy said in Jesus’ name

You don’t know my Daddy from Adam or from Eve
You don’t know my daddy from Cain
You don’t my daddy
And you do not know me
And “Goddamn Christ”. That’s all I got to say in Jesus’ name
