Old dog hobble down a one way road,
if it wasn’t for the bottle he’d be skin & bones
Hands up to heaven with a heavy load,
dancing to Jesus and the Rolling Stones
So Hey Man Could you pray? Hey man, could you pray?
Ask for forgiveness that old time religion,
but there’s no prayer for me.
Blind St Peter bout to come undone,
moving like he’s shaking off of Jesus’ son
Eyes on the temple, head in his hands,
dancing for the devil and the promise land.
If someone is listening,
demanding what yer hindering
Find a way to set me free.
Ask if yer bleeding, you’ll only stop believing,
beg and cry for sweet release
Pray for yer mother, stay for yer father,
don’t give up on yer family
I’d walk on water, brave fire for a lover,
give my life on bended knee
But don’t ask or forgiveness,
that old time religion,
coz there’s no prayer for me.
