Intro:                                                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


(BBCCBC)It was the summer of '76, bicentennial at the church
(CBCBCB)Mama sewed most all our clothes, and always had since my birth
(")And daddy preached those folks right to their feet, 'til tears were streaming down their face
(")The spirit moved in each and every pugh, I prayed to God I'd die that day...die that (G)day

(EDCB)And the wives say not to walk through the graves
(ED)For fear that the ground will take your soul
(EDCB)I can't hide, I was curious inside
(CB)And I made those graves my second second home

My daddy's footsteps laid out for me, I dreamed a priest at 17
Miss Natalie took the boy right out of me, in that grave yard behind that country church
She looked to me and said, "Forget your ministry, this is the greatest sin save birth"
She starts to cry and she holds me tight and says, "I hope your hell my love was worth"

I knelt down right there on the ground
and prayed to God my soul to soul to take


(CBCBCB)If it's a crime then, I don't know why cause, her nakedness was God to me
And all through the night we just held each other tight, sure that we both lost the kingdom keys
Said, "It's a long way home from here, I'd be proud to walk you all the way"
She said, "The farmer's wives will hear and somehow turn our love to shame"

She said...Refrain
We laid down, right there on the ground
And lost our souls at 17...age 17

1993 they buried Miss Natalie
In that grave yard behind that country church...that old country church

Ayyy...     end on G
