PEPPERMINTS AND HYMNALS

MY PAPAW WOULD STAND BESIDE ME IN THE PEW
PREACHER TALK OF SALVATION
AND ETERNITY
I WOULD JUST SIT THERE UNWRAPPING MY SWEETS
PEPPERMINTS AND HYMNALS
IS WHAT I TOOK WITH ME

MY MAMAW WOULD SIT THERE AND PUT ON LIP STICK
BEFORE CHURCH ON SUNDAY EVERY WEEK
SHE'D TELL ME DEAR CHILD
KEEP MY MINT IN MY CHEEK
SING THE WORDS YOU KNOW
AT LEAST HUM THE MELODY

OH LORD HAVE MERCY
OH LORD PLEASE SAVE MY SOUL
OH LORD FORGIVE ME
AND TAKE ME WHEN I GO

THAT SWEET TASTE I STILL SAVOR
STILL SMELL THE AGE OF THOSE BOOKS
THE LIQUOR ON THE BREATH OF THE VAGRANTS
THE CHOIR SOUNDING SWEET AS THOSE PEPPERMINTS
