Preservation Blues

Drew James © 2001

 

Pharaoh came riding through his desert estate

Pyramid’s risin’ up to challenge his fate

Though not accused

He’s sentenced to the preservation blues

 

Bandit lies waiting in the drizzlin’ rain

Citizens spot him from the passenger train

Shakin’ in their shoes

They whisper the preservation blues

 

Oh lord won’t you save them

Their lives are on the line

Their battles are ragin’

And time ain’t on their side

Oh lord, they’re crying out to you

This prayer called the preservation blues

 

Ghost in the mirror, has a hold of my soul

Little by little, it is takin’ its toll

Born to lose

And to pray the preservation blues

 

Oh lord won’t you save us

Our lives are on the line

Our battles are ragin’

And time ain’t on our side

Oh lord, we're crying out to you

This prayer called the preservation blues

This prayer called the preservation blues

This prayer called the preservation blues
