Bet you took a long journey from boyhood to youth
Bet you struggled with your faith and searched in vain for proof
Bet you fell in with the wrong crowd and strayed a bit too far
But you no longer gamble because you love the Lord

Jesus Loves you but he don’t love that noise you’re making
With that damned guitar

Heard you started boozin’ at 3pm
Heard you lost your religion like REM
Heard you got that guitar and formed a rock’n’roll band
Let loose three weighty bar chords, sang of your inner pain

Now you got a lamp to light your path
Now you got a support group to keep your life on track
But you still got that guitar and you can’t put it back
So you’re wailing for the Lord and you’re bringing the attack

Is it lonesome in the light at center stage?
Is there some inscrutable guilt that you cannot assuage?
Does it make you wonder if you’re living the right way?
Well, no amount of shreddin’ gets you into heaven
Here the words I say
