Corb Lund - Bible On The Dash

rate me

A two night stand in Tulsa pullin out an headed west

Freddie grabbed the Gideons from the hotel in the desk, I said what's the matter brother are you worried for your soul?

He said better safe than sorry boys, thats just how I role

We hit the road a feelin cool as Crosby, Stills and Nash overflowin with the spirit an a bible on the dash

Well we pulled the whole thing over for the flashin reds and blues

The police come to the window and we said Have you heard the news?

He said dont get smart with me boy, why you doin 95?

my foot is heavy with redemption, Im just blessed to be alive!

He said I oughtta pull you out a there an beat you black and blue

I placed my hand upon the good book an said what would Jesus do?

Its better than insurance, registration or lyin

Its better than these fake IDs I have to keep buyin

Its even better than an envelope stuffed with cash

They always said itd save me, that old bible on the da-ash

Well round these parts that hair alonell make probable cause

If youre movin through my county, youll obey my earthly laws

Well we did our best to quote some holy red chapter or verse

what kinda music you boys makin?

we said Christian music sir!

well he thought about it, contemplated, twirled his cop moustache

alright yall be careful now, just dont drive quite so fast

Its better than insurance, registration or lyin

Its better than these fake IDs I keep on buyin

Its even better than an envelope stuffed with cash

They always said itd save me, that old bible on the da-ash

&.

Well crossin at the border a few months later we heard FREEZE

Pull in over there son, we gonna do some search and seize.

Maybe if wed been more famous hed a said just move along

If hed a seen us on the TV, if hed heard our single songs

Well hes just about to ask us wheres the money guns and hash

Well Is prayin it would save me, that ol bible on the dash

His hand was on his pistol, his dog was on his leash

An that shepard he was a keeping a pretty close eye on the sheep

We got a list were gonna look at, see if we cant find your names

We got parabolic laser beams hears everything you say

We got ultraviolet x-rays that can see right through your bus

Yes sir well I hope the good lord keeps an eye on all of us, yup

Its better than a green card, its better than lyin

Its better than these work visas I keep on buyin

Its better than an envelope stuffed with cash

Lord Im at the border with a bible on the da-ash
