May Be A Sinner

Photo Credit : Jack Grace

Out walking , shuffling sometimes
Find peace of mind in a rhyme babe
been talking , people listening
but here I am just constantly shifting
I’ve searched the earth for the reason I’m being
and babe you help to get me there

but when I come to the end of my journey
and I’m courting the midnight hour
drop to my knees – pray God have mercy
raise my hands to the sky as I cry out …

that Moses gonna give me my walking papers
Ezekiel gonna cast my eyes to the sky
Jesus gonna shine down with all his glory
God knows I’m a sinner but at least I’m trying

My old fedora is slippery shining
In the rain of dreams at night
I sense I’ve left my sweetie wanting
her rhythm hound to hold her tight
blue suede boots still sidewalk shuffle
to some funky vintage soul

but when I come to the end of my journey
and I’m courting the midnight hour
drop to my knees – pray God have mercy
raise my hands to the sky as I cry out …

that Moses gonna give me my walking papers
Ezekiel gonna cast my eyes to the sky
Jesus gonna shine down with all his glory
God knows I’m a sinner but at least I’m trying

I may not know the moral to the story
I may not be my brother’s keep
But I can see the lighthouse burning
as I pray my soul to sleep
and when you gamble on the gypsy
you must accept the wings to fly

and when you come to the end of your journey
and you’re courting the midnight hour
drop to your knees – pray God have mercy
raise your hands to the sky and cry out …

that Moses gonna give you your walking papers
Ezekiel gonna cast your eyes to the sky
Jesus gonna shine down with all his glory
God knows you’re a sinner but at least you’re trying
