ERIC TAYLOR –“YOUR GOD”( )

When the boatmen stole the Africans
Did your God ride or row?
When they roped them and they shackled them
Was he with them in the hold?
Was the ocean moon so beautiful
That it brought him to his knees?
What did your God see?
When she prayed out loud in Cherokee
Was that your God by the fire?
When she swayed up there in the sweet gum tree
Was he hanging up there beside her?
Did he bless the silver rivers?
Did he fix himself a drink?
What did your God see?
If I sing hallelujah, will he hold my hand?
Can we dance among the blessed and the damned?
When the glory train is moving onto Beulah Land
Can I ride as far as Andilar and come on back to town?
Did your God ride the bullet
To the old Lorraine Hotel?
Is it the blood of the lamb, is it another man down
Did he catch him when he fell?
Did he calm the waters?
Did his heart just freeze?
What did your God see?
Did your God ride the backroads
On a Texas summer night?
Did he stand there in the pine grove
As they drug him out of sight?
Did he stand for the last communion?
Did he kneel to wash his feet?
What did your God see?
If I sing hallelujah, will he hold my hand?
Can we dance among the blessed and the damned?
When the glory train is moving onto Beulah Land
Can I ride as far as Andilar and come on back to town?
