about

As a child growing up in the south I was taken to church a lot. I don't have a problem with church or people that like to go, I just feel not to acknowledge the hypocrisy of a good number of established churches and their congregations or leaders, is to ignore the possibility that they themselves can lead you down an "un-holy path". I'm not here to talk about religion. I'm just singing a song and telling a story that I've seen time and time again first hand.

lyrics

She was her mommas little baby, but the years flew by
She started smoking and drinking, and seeing older guys
She used to be a beauty queen,
The sweetest thing you'd ever seen,
But you'd never guess it now
No you'd never guess it now

And the church is screaming Jezebel
And casting stones for fun
But nobody knows where the preacher goes
When sundays sermon is done
When sundays sermon is done

She was her daddy's little angel, but the devil's got her now
In high heels and short skirts on the corners downtown
She used to be so innocent
The perfect little Christian,
But you'd never guess it now
No you'd never guess it now

And the church is screaming Jezebel
And casting stones for fun
But nobody knows where the preacher goes
When sundays sermon is done
When sundays sermon is done
