lyrics

When I came to they tried to take my blood
I didn’t know just what I’d done
I said no, but the judge said yes
Nothing like the law to put your mind to rest
I said hold back
Ease up
Don’t have to be good to have good luck

Threw me into that Memphis jail
Thirty six hours til they took my bail
So I played chess with the christian bloods
Next thing you know I’m praying with the thugs
Saying hold back
Ease up
Don’t have to be good to have good luck

Let me tell you what I did this time
Took out a gate blacked outta my mind
Passed out at the wheel drinking moonshine
And puked on cop at the scene of the crime
I said hold back
Ease up
Don’t have to be good to have good luck

It took fifteen years
Of going outta my mind
To accept that faith
Is all that gets us by
Most people rather believe
Someone else’s lie
Or make up their own
That helps them give a
Fuck
Don’t have have to be good to have good luck

I got faith in the blues
The funk, the soul and the holy groove
Hallow be that which moves
Your eyes to shine in the gloom
Gives us the strength to do our best
Delivers us from emptiness
An invisible sacrament
That medicates the malcontent
I said hold back
Ease up
Don’t have to be good to have good luck

Chorus x2
