Lyrics for "Preacher’s a Friend of Mine"

Verse 1
Come Sunday morning, the faithful come shuffling in
But preaching the word to those already saved, don’t do nothing for him
No, he’d rather spend time with the likes of me
Cause saving my soul is what sets his soul free

The Preacher’s a friend of mine
He comes over once in a while and drinks whiskey with me
And talks about women we’ve known

I ask if I’m going to Hell
He says it ain’t his job to know
But he swears if I am I ain’t going alone
Cause he’ll be beside me, fighting the devil for my soul

Verse 2
Well he says lying in bed on a Sunday’s a sin
There’s an empty seat in his church that I should be in
But Saturday nights ain’t so easy on me
And he should know better than most, this life that I lead (cause…)


He grew up just down the street
I could have been him and he could have been me
But the choices that we made
Led us both to our fates
