we talked in that northern town
f                         c
on the forest highway
f                                 g
where the sisters and mothers
f                     c
gathered to pray.

sang songs of knowing grace
and thought of texico
where the rightous get buried
with sins that we know.

em                                            f               c
her many many heartbreaks her dreams of paradise
em                                             c                 g
her father came to love her and brought this holy night 

alabama preacher man
his pride'll do him in
left his texas folk behind
and will not make amends.

heard choirs and angels
remind us of his birth
took comfort from the trumpet
saved all the earth.

her many many heartbreaks her dreams of paradise
her father came to love her and brought this holy night
