Saint on a Chain
(Kevin Gordon)

I grew up right down the road
Never had too far to go
Making it here, your chance is slim
Folks leave this town, you won’t see em again
Mama died in ’93
This silver medal she gave to me
St. Christopher ‘round my neck
Wherever I go, my soul he protects

Every river’s a daughter of a dirty rain
But see how it shines
Water’s moving like the blood pushing through my veins
See how it shines, like a saint on a chain

Heather was so sweet to me
Her daddy owned some property
Maybe my drinking was a little too much
She turned cold to my touch
That story ‘bout another woman,
maybe it was true--
Heather put together 2 and 2
She kicked me out and changed the locks
On my motel door now the sheriff knocks

After work I take my lonesome down
With a Percocet, and a double shot of Crown
But now the higher I get, the harder it seems
To get back to that place that floats like a dream

One hand on the wheel, doing 85
All my trouble just flies on by
I want to forget everything I know
I want to close my eyes and just let her go
Rearview glow of the city bright
Angel of death got no headlight
And you who’d protect me, I ask no more
Just carry me ‘cross to that other shore
