Gospel Guys Lyrics

I ain’t a kiddin’
when I say I been skiddin’
On life’s gravel road.
The meaning is hidden
But I’m doin’ your biddin’
And I’m carryin’ a heavy load.


  1. Rufus McCain says

    I could repent
    Or pay the rent
    But I can’t manage both.
    The angels you’ve sent
    Have all been slightly bent
    But I won’t break my oath.

  2. Rufus McCain says

    I’ve a funny sensation
    Like a sort of vibration
    Down in my gut.
    I feel like I’m crashin’
    And my teeth are a-gnashin’
    As I take the cut.

  3. Rufus McCain says

    The center don’t hold
    And the sheep of the fold
    Are all lost.
    We’re all too old
    To do what we’re told
    And be bossed.

  4. Rufus McCain says

    I feel hollowed out
    Or like a forty-year drought
    On the farm.
    For the shadow of doubt
    A punch in the snout
    Does the charm.

  5. Rufus McCain says

    My prayers fall flat
    Like something shat
    From a cow.
    I got hit with a bat
    And slammed to the mat
    Just now.

  6. Quin Finnegan says

    That he’s been drinkin’
    While doin’ his thinkin
    Is obvious.
    Lord, please deliver
    Us from this palaver-
    ous, gloomy gus.

  7. Rufus McCain says

    You’re right on the mark
    If you say my beer’s dark
    And dreary.
    When my bumper meets bark
    It won’t be a lark
    Nor cheery.

  8. Musicologist says

    Song Title: “DUI”
    Album: Speak English or Get the Fuck Out, The Gospel Guys, Ripe Records, 1997.
