Hi friends – happy Tuesday!
I’m popping on to the blog today share my new YouTube video with y’all real quick. My goal is to upload a live acoustic performance of my original songs every other week. This week is “Take Me Down”, a southern gospel-inspired song about my perspective on faith, forgiveness, and everything in between.
I hope y’all enjoy, and please give me a “like” if you do!
she gave her life to Jesus, she was 6 years old, at least that’s what she told her momma
it’s funny what we think we know before we’re grown
and drinkin’ ain’t the problem, it’s the hand that pours,
that’s what my daddy always told me
and a humbled man’ll reap every grain he sows
it ain’t a checklist, it ain’t some qualifying test
to weed out the sinners and worship the saints
so give your holy rollin’ a rest
and take me down to the sound of forgiveness
take me down to the little stone church at the edge of town
or we don’t even gotta go that far, we can sing right here at the local bar
just take me down, take me down, take me down
and some folks chase unfailing grace by paying their prosperity
how many checks can you toss in that offering tray?
cause sittin’ in the front pew every sabbath day ain’t some kind of insurance policy
ain’t about what you give, it’s about what you take away
it ain’t a competition there ain’t no county fair grand prize
we’re all on the same wire two feet from the fire and the devil’s tryna cut up the line
and you can call me bat-crazy but I believe in things that I can’t see,
even when the devil’s hanging’ ’round
take me down, take me down, take me down
