Three Chord Preacher - feat. John Melville

from by Cody Melville



Janey lives in the car pool lane
But she drives alone every mile
I heard once the FBI
was putting together a file

It’s okay if the thought in your head
explodes one day and you die
You’ll be living high - way in the sky
with scholars, punks, who knows why

I got lost in the Three Chord Preacher
Bet my life on a four minute cry
Ain’t she something I said to myself then
So much of this game is a lie

You got time to go to the races
You got time to dress in style
I hear there’s an appreciation
For tough broads who know how to smile

You’ve got walls in the corner of your mind
You’ve got love I know that you do
I’m running away to join the millions
who live in the city and sing out of tune
