16 horsepower – for heaven’s sake lyrics


i surely knew it was a trap ye
yet my hands they would not listen
i shoulda known your word was flap
comin’ out all sweet an drippin’
o so where could i go – yes but to the lord
i been to your house an’ see what you adore
i left there stiff – stiff as a board
where could i go but to the lord
when will i hurt for heaven’s sake
when will i suffer for the sake of heaven
all my love well it is madness
freely given to you folks with gladness
i will not live and die – no not by the sword
i am weak without the joy of the lord
taste and see that the lord is good
let’s bend our knees like we know we should
we can’t see clear – our eyes are made of wood
taste and see boy that the lord is good
