lyrics

It’s a Sunday night in Chambersburg
Snowing outside like an Old Testament curse
Feeling awful sick and my wife says she’s walking
Phoned up the preacher but he won’t be calling
She says preach is gone now that’s where I’m going

And I don’t think things could be much worse
Cuz it’s a dry night in Chambersburg

She says preach will be buried in the morning
The cancer took him without much warning
They say he was a genuine faith healer
Don’t know what I saw but I want to believe it
The Lord called him home now he’s gone to get his reward

But now I don’t think things could be much worse
On a dry night in Chambersburg

To this town he came a stranger
Heard it all before this time it cut me like a razor
When that man was talking ‘bout the savior
I put my bottle right down
Started drinking from the cup

Now I don’t know what could be worse
Than a dry night in Chambersburg

With fingers parted
And taught hands a’ quakin’
He whispered words
That left me all shaken

Go now
Be whole
Unbroken in body
Flat-busted in soul
You’ll thirst no longer
Your void is now full
Receive this blessing
In the name of the Lord
Amen

The ground is covered
But it’s opening up
The love that conquered
It’s swallowing up
And on that day where we all end up
He’s gonna tickle it’s throat
And all it holds
Will be given up

Until that day
Got this question to burn
Since he’s gone my thirst has returned
Now I’m not sure what my
Faith will earn

How ‘bout another dry night in Chambersburg
