Roadhouse Chapel

 

I walked home last night
‘Cause it was not far to go
Yeah, I walked home last night
‘Cause it was not that far to go
The roadhouse wasn’t far
But it’s much farther when you’re stoned

I got high last night
But the music brought me home
Yeah, I got high last night
And that sweet music brought me home
The choir was light and clear
And I had so far to roam

So I stumbled to that chapel
And I got down on my knees
Yeah, I went down to that old chapel
I got down on my damn knees
‘Cause you know that these damn gods,
These damned gods are hard to please

Jesus called to me last night!
But I could not take the call
Yeah, Sweet Jesus called to me last night!
But I just could not take the call
Of all the gods I had to choose from,
I ain’t got no damn luck at all

So I stumbled back to the roadhouse
And I got myself a beer
I stumbled back to the road house
And I done got myself a beer
Man, the blues was tight but loose
Lord, I ain’t never leavin’ here
