Toadies - Backslider

rate me

Bended knee

Nine years old

Waitin' for...

Just one word!

I was thinkin' of all the things

My daddy told me of

Sin and salvation and

Manhood and dignity...

All that time

In the dark

Just one word...


I remember the day I stepped

Into the water

My daddy held me in his hands

And pushed my head under

And said...

Son I am

So proud.

Just one word...


Well I opened my eyes

And my daddy held me in his hands

I looked up through the water

And thought I saw Jesus, and then...

Well I threw up my hands!

And I heard, Amen!

And I prayed, sweet Jesus

Don't let me become a backslider!
