Drag the river - Forgiveness

My daddy preached to me
Everyday for years
The day that he died
I swallowed my tears
With a tip of the bottle
And a wish you were here
I'd trade forgiveness for a beer
I sat with my grandma in her rockin' chair
The sun felt so warm through her light blue hair
From the pages of her bible
And a fresh breath of air
I'd trade forgiveness for a beer
I know my beliefs they ain't right
It's the only way I can
Make it through the night
I pray the lord to keep me asleep
So I can dream of the promise land
'Cause my dreams are the only time I can
Sleep never makes it round here
We say amen
And gather at the bar
Amazing Grace loud and clear
I know what he'd say
If he were here
But I'd trade forgiveness for a beer
But I'd trade forgiveness for a beer
