Father's Son

My father he done told me
To never ever hurt no one
But now I'm sick and mad and I've been
caught red handed
Hell I'm still my father's son

I lay awake 'til daylight
A pillow and a gun
And if my secret dreams could be seen on screen
Then they'll be coming for this one

I'm so down Lord
better slow down Lord

Please Lord now forgive me
Even though I don't deserve
I never was too good and now
The Devil's all I serve

My woman she done left me
I told her twice to go
The first time she ignored me
But then I threw her on the floor

I'm so down Lord
better slow down Lord

Well I sleep with one eye open
I weep with both eyes closed
Time is coming down on me
And tomorrow never knows

Haven't I suffered?
Haven't I suffered my fill?
And if you don't pray for me now
Nobody ever will

I'm so down Lord
better slow down Lord

Now I'm in the graveyard
There is darkness all around
Voices floating through the air
Speaking with no sound

You were your father's son
But you left him far beyond
Beyond the reach of mercy
In the darkness of the sun

I'm so down Lord
better slow down Lord
