BADGER lyrics - The Preacher

BADGER
"The Preacher"

He wakes up and reaches for
The whiskey by his side
His heart is filled with shame
But he can't turn the tide,oh no

Still he spreads the word of God
It's all he's got to keep from goin' insane
No one hears him in pray

But should listen well
To the story that he tells
As he's standing in the rain

Listen to the Preacher
Listen to what he say, alright
Listen to the Preacher
You've gotta stay a while
You got the time to pray
They know that he's a drunkard
But he's seen the light of day

He's just another man
With dues still left to pay
It's a bottle every day
It's a bottle every day
Yes, it's a bottle every day

Been around a long, long time
And started drinking young
He says it doesn't matter now
His life is almost done

He has spent his life in vain
Always trying to ease the pain
In the heart of his fellow man

Oh and now it's come this
Is it me,in a mess?
But no one understands

Listen to the Preacher
Listen to what he say, alright
Listen to the Preacher
Why don't you stay a while
You got time to pray
They know that he's a drunkard
But he's seen the light of day

He's just another man
With dues still left to pay
It's a bottle every day
It's a bottle every day
Yes, it's a bottle every day
