lyrics

Daddy preached and mama cried
On Sunday morning and Wednesday night
Songs of faith and words of fire
He's coming back with an angel choir

When Jesus died up on that tree
I hope he died for good ol boys like me.
Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint pretty but its my story
A guilty saint who just can't get it right.
But the good book says my future's looking bright.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
When I hear that moonshine bottle slammin down.

The county judge had that look
As I swore my oath on the holy book.
I told the truth but I'd done the crime.
I knew I'd have to do some time.

When Jesus died up on that tree
I hope he died for good ol boys like me.
Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint pretty but its my story
A guilty saint who just can't get it right.
But the good book says my future's looking bright.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
When I hear that moonshine bottle slammin down.

Before my God I stand
A tired and broken man
Who tried to do what's right

Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint pretty but its my story
A guilty saint who just can't get it right.
But the good book says my future's looking bright.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
is what they'll sing when they lay me down
while they pass that moonshine bottle all around

Jesus moonshine and the hope of glory.
It aint perfect but its my story.
A guilty saint i'll someday get it right
with an angel choir walking in the light
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
is what they'll sing when they lay me down
while they pass that moonshine bottle all around
