Tyler Childers – Purgatory (Purgatory Album)

Will you pray for me?
When the roots of the oak and my ribcage are braidin’
If I can think
Lord knows that I will fall and pray for you

High on the hill where the fox horns blow
And down in my grave where they lay me low
Catholic girl, pray for me
You’re my only hope for Heaven

When I was a boy
I’d drink and love and smoke and snort my fill
But all the while
I kept in mind the Lord’s redeeming grace

High on the hill where the fox horns blow
And down in the city where the heathens go
Catholic girl, pray for me
You’re my only hope for Heaven

Do you reckon he lets Freewill boys poke around in purgatory?

I know that Hell
Is just as real as I am surely breathin’
But I’ve heard tale
Of a middle ground, I think will work for me

When the time has come for changing worlds
I’ll hedge my bets with a Catholic girl
Catholic girl, pray for me
You’re my only hope for Heaven
