Heathen Girl

  1. Heathen Girl -:-- / -:--

Written by Katie Belle

They say I’m just a heathen girl but your hymns did give me pause

Sitting outside the chapel on the day of the Pentecost

Well it’s not my fear of burning lord that cast my eyes above

It’s who did put the stars in place and who made my mama love

This lonesome little heathen girl, her sorry sin stained dove

I was in the backyard when the savior came to call.

Nights I dream of divine love. It’s not jealous unkind or vain

But I was on a side street when the savior drove down main

Well the neon sun has burned my eyes and liquor stewed my brains

Tempted by earthly pleasures, I’ve let Satan have his way

But I’ve tried to be kind to my fellow man and honest in my way

Cause we’ll all go down together when four horsemen ride our way

Nights I dream of divine love. It’s not jealous unkind or vain

But I was on a side street when the savior drove down main

Nights I dream of divine love. It’s not jealous unkind or vain

But I was on a side street when the savior drove down main
