      Bruce Springsteen - If I Was The Priest Música y Letra

      There's a light on yonder mountain
      And it's callin' me to shine
      There's a girl over by the water fountain
      And she's askin' to be mine
      And Jesus is standin' in the doorway
      In a buckskin jacket, boots and spurs so fine
      He says, "We need you son tonight up in Dodge City
      'Cause there's just too many outlaws
      Tryin' to work the same line"
      Now if Jesus was a sheriff and I was the priest
      If my lady was an heiress and my Mama was a thief
      If Papa rode shotgun for the Fargo line There's still too many bad boys
      Tryin' to work the same line
      Well sweet Virgin Mary runs the Holy Grail saloon
      For a nickel she'll give you whiskey and a personally blessed balloon
      And the Holy Ghost is the host with the most, he runs the burlesque show
      Where they'll let you in for free and they hit you when you go
      Mary serves Mass on Sunday and then she sells her body on Monday
      To the bootlegger who pays the highest price
      He don't know he got stuck with a loser, she's a stone junkie what's more she's a user
      She's only been made once or twice by some kind of magic
      If Jesus was a sheriff and I was the priest
      If my lady was an heiress and my Mama was a thief
      And Papa rode shotgun for the Fargo line There's still too many outlaws
      Tryin' to work the same line
      Well things ain't been the same in heaven since big bad Bobby came to town
      He's been known to down eleven, then ask for another round
      Me, I've got scabs on my knees from kneeling way too long It's about time
      I played the man and took a stand where I belong
      Forget about the old friends and the old times
      There's just too many new boys
      Tryin' to work the same line
      If Jesus was a sheriff and I were the priest If my lady was an heiress and my Mama was a thief
      And Papa rode shotgun for the Fargo line There's just too many outlaws tryin' to work the same line
      Well there's a light on yonder mountain
      And it's callin' me to shine
      There's a girl over by the water fountain She's asking to be mine
      Jesus is standin' in the doorway
      Six guns drawn and ready to fan
      Said, "We need you son tonight up in Dodge City"
      I told him I was already overdue for Cheyenne
      If Jesus was the sheriff and I was the priest If my lady was an heiress and my Mama was a thief
      And Papa rode shotgun on the Fargo line There's still too many bad boys
      Tryin' to work the same line
      If Jesus was the sheriff and I was the priest If my lady was an heiress and my Mama was a thief
      And Papa rode shotgun on the Fargo line There's still too many bad boys
      Tryin' to work the same line
      If Jesus was the sheriff and I was the priest
