[Intro]
G D Em C

[Verse]
G EmI remember Daddy held the Bible like a gun
C DBack when I was a Pentecostal Gospel preacher’s son
G EmAnd I still can see the fire and brimstone in his eyes
CWhen he preached to people in a tent
DRepent before you die
Em C DMe I’d sneak out back with some saintly southern girl
Em C DAnd there I’d teach her the ways of this world
[Chorus]
G DWell, I guess I was a way too wild to be the child of a preacher man
Em C DWith one foot on solid rock and one on the sinking sand
G DJust like the Prodigal son I guess I got way too lost
Em C D GLiving somewhere in between the devil and the cross
[Verse]
G EmI was Daddy’s worst nightmare by the time I turned eighteen
C DBaptized in a whiskey river on the streets of New Orleans
G EmWell, the demons, drugs, and rock n’ roll they seemed to cloud my mind
C DAnd women were a weakness for weeks at a time
Em C DI learned the hard way what you reap is what you sow
Em C DSo, in silent desperation, one night I headed home
[Chorus]
G DYeah, I guess I was a way too wild to be the child of a preacher man
Em C DWith one foot on solid rock and one on the sinking sand
G DJust like the Prodigal son I guess I got way too lost
Em C D GLiving somewhere in between the devil and the cross
[Bridge]
CDaddy did more than talk the talk
EmHe walked the walk in life
D C DHe loved me and forgave me when I came home that night
C EmHe said, “Son, don’t ever be ashamed for God forgives the lost.
D C DWe all live somewhere in between the devil and the cross.”
[Chorus]
G DLord, I guess I was a way too wild to be the child of a preacher man
Em C DWith one foot on solid rock and one on the sinking sand
G DJust like the Prodigal son I guess I got way too lost
Em C D GLiving somewhere in between the devil and the cross
D Em C DWhoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa
G DWhoa, Whoa, Whoa, Whoa
Em C D GI got way too lost
