  • He packed a big-ass church out near Rogersville
    He drove the Cadillac she drove the Oldsmobile
    Every Friday he shacked up with his mistress
    Doing things that he'd never do with the Mrs.
    Who was back at home cooking dinner for him
    They had a son who never had the calling
    He went all over town drinking and balling
    Got some girl pregnant when he was still a teen
    Working at McDonald's and pumping gasoline
    Driving that Camaro fast with all his friends
    Daddy's been preaching the word ever since he was twelve
    All about a merciful savior and the fires of hell
    I know he meant it, so what's a little straying
    He got everybody singing and a praying
    "That devil better not come back down here again"
    Missy wore them go-go boots; it did something for him
    Made him think his wife back home was homely and boring
    He met these guys who didn't mind getting dirty
    He was a pillar and his alibi was sturdy
    It only took a little bit of cash and the deed was done
    Stained glass windows, Jesus looking down
    Organs playing music to the middle aged crowd
    His wife's in the ground the devil's in his head
    Them go-go boots are underneath the bed
    But it's a small town and word gets around
    Gossip is a flying and his son starts to thinking
    He see's his Daddy's new wife driving around in a Lincoln
    There's a lot he'd like to ask if he could get the chance
    But he's scared he might have to kill the old man
    He wonders what the Lord will say when he weighs it all out
    It's a small town. Go-Go boots. Publisher: WORDS & MUSIC A DIV OF BIG DEAL MUSIC LLC
