BUCKY COVINGTON lyrics : "The Bible And The Belt"

Well I grew up back in the sticks
I was raised on cornbread and scripture
And praise God for teachin' me wrong from right

I had a wild streak
Three counties wide
They would have me

Dead in the sack
It was the hand of God'
That got me out of the hands of the law


Mama taught the bible
Daddy wore the belt

Momma set the table
Daddy rang the bell
The preacher did his best to show me the light

But daddy was the one that kept me walkin' the line
Momma sang the gospel
Daddy drove it home

Momma was an angel
Daddy was the brimstone
One foot in heaven

One foot in hell
I found religion between the bible and the belt


I guess it rings true
But the good book says
What you learn young

You never forget
Daddy's belt left quite an impression on me


I can still hear
Momma's voice in the choir
She set the whole dang church on fire

And it still burns in the deepest part of me

Mama taught the bible

Daddy wore the belt
Momma set the table
Daddy rang the bell

The preacher did his best to show me the light
But daddy was the one that kept me walkin' the line
Momma sang the gospel

Daddy drove it home
Momma was an angel
Daddy was the brimstone

One foot in heaven
One foot in hell
I found religion between the bible and the belt


Mama taught the bible
Daddy wore the belt

Momma set the table
Daddy rang the bell
The preacher did his best to show me the light

But daddy was the one that kept me walkin' the line
Momma sang the gospel
Daddy drove it home

Momma was an angel
Daddy was the brimstone
One foot in heaven

One foot in hell
I found religion between the bible and the belt
