  • Just a girl born in Dixie
    Washed in the blood
    And raised on the banks
    Of the Mississippi mud
    She always had a thing
    About fallin' in love with a bad boy

    Yeah, they could see it all comin'
    But her daddy never dreamed
    She'd grow up that fast
    You know what I mean
    The way a girl gets
    When she turns 17
    Kinda crazy

    She's a rebel child
    And a preacher's daughter
    She was baptized in dirty water
    Her mama cried the first time
    They caught her with me
    They knew they couldn't stop her

    She holds tight to me and the Bible
    On the back seat of my motorcycle
    Left her daddy standin' there
    Preachin' to the choir
    You see, God love her
    Oh me and God love her

    She kissed her mama goodbye
    Said I'll be sure 'n phone ya
    She called from a truck stop
    In Tucson Arizona
    With amazing grace
    We made California line
    And then my gypsy life
    Started takin' it's toll
    And the fast lane got empty
    And out of control
    And just like an angel
    She saved my soul from the devil

    Yeah she's a rebel child
    And a preacher's daughter
    She was baptized in dirty water
    Her mama cried the first time
    They caught her with me
    They knew they couldn't stop her

    She holds tight to me and the Bible
    On the back seat of my motorcycle
    Left her daddy standin' there
    Preachin' to the choir
    You see, God love her
    Oh me and God love her

    She holds tight to me and the Bible
    On the back seat of my motorcycle
    Left her daddy standin' there
    Preachin' to the choir
    You see, God love her
    Oh me and God love her

    God love her
