  • Lyrics
  • Televangelist Marvin Gorman's downfall came in 1986, followed by Jim Baker's in 1987 and Jimmy Swaggart's in 1988. All fell because of their conceit and moral failings. Dylan's mention of sickness of the soul, delusions of grandeur, and the idea that you are to good to die was written after tele evangelist Jimmy Swaggart's downfall. Dylan mentions again an incident of a preacher's transgressions with a prostitute in "The Man With The Black Coat," which also appears on the O Mercy album. >>
