Bended knee Nine years old Waitin' for Just one word!
I was thinkin' of all the things My daddy told me of Sin and salvation and Manhood and dignity
All that time In the dark Just one word Backslider!
I remember the day I stepped Into the water My daddy held me in his hands And pushed my head under And said
Son I am So proud. Just one word Backslider!
Well I opened my eyes And my daddy held me in his hands I looked up through the water And thought I saw Jesus, and then
Well I threw up my hands! And I heard, Amen! And I prayed, sweet Jesus Don't let me become a backslider!
