Tyler Farr's Redemption Song
Tyler Farr's "I Should Go to Church Sometime" Lyrics:
Saw a man on the sidewalk / Hungry written in red chalk / Maybe he just wanted to talk / But I walked away. Saw a kid on the TV / He was only seventeen / Wrapped his truck ‘round an oak tree / The whole town prayed / I should go to church sometime.
Easter and Christmas / Yeah, I don't ever miss it / I ask for forgiveness / They tell me what I like to hear / But I need a revival / For this prodigal disciple / Wipe the dust off my Bible / More than once or twice a year.
I should go to church sometime / Maybe walk a little straighter line / Lord knows I could use some light / To get where I’m going / I shouldn’t say “next Sunday” / I shouldn’t let my pride get in the way / I know I shouldn’t be afraid / Of what I know I’ll find / I should go to church sometime / I should go to church sometime.
No, it ain’t until you’re sinking / Till you really start listening / You get down on your knees, down on your knees / You swear it’s the last time that you’ll say.
