John the Baptist

John the Baptist

Angie Aparo

 

VERSE 1

A Soul made of paper

Won't survive a razor

That come from the darkest place

 

My blood hit the sky

Ain't it funny how you try

to remember how your momma prayed

 

She loved John the Baptist

Cause he know your sadness

And I heard the siren wail

 

The ambulance angel

Baptized the cradle

We rode through the weather

With my palms together

Remember how my momma prayed

 

CHORUS

One two

I'm loving you

With my hands

With my hands

 

Three four

You bring me more

Of understand

Of understanding

 

John the Baptist

Had a rap sheet

Saving souls

Down on River Street

 

John the Baptist

Can you save me

All the lonely

Down on River Street

 

VERSE 2

We ran through low country

The red light was spinning

With needles inside me

We sailed on the wind and

 

We cross the big river

And I saw below me

My soul made of paper

And I saw it floating

 

Under the bridge

Yea oh John the Baptist

He started smiling

The ambulance passing

And I started laughing

 

CHORUS

One two

I'm loving you

With my hands

With my hands

 

Three four

You bring me more

Of understand

Of understanding

 

John the Baptist

Had a rap sheet

Saving souls

Down on River Street

 

John the Baptist

Yea he saved me

All the lonely

Down on River Street

 

SOLO

 

CHORUS

One two

I'm loving you

With my hands

With my hands

 

Three four

You bring me more

Of understand

Of understanding

 

One two

I'm loving you

With my hands

With my hands

 

Three four

You bring me more

Of understand

Of understanding

 

John the Baptist 

Yea he saved me

John the Baptist

Down on River Street

 

John the Baptist 

Yea he saved me

John the Baptist

Yea he saved me

 

All the lonely

Down on River Street

Oh John the Baptist yea
