Some people can't be redeemed

lyrics

She was forging a lifetime wasting spaces
Then Jenny baby got a diamond ring in Vegas
Reverend Billy brought a bible to the table
With her dresses and furs and her bottle of whiskey
Reverend Billy took Jenny back to Mississippi
I’m gonna make a good woman out of you
And she said honey you just don’t know about me
I’m only gonna cause you grief
Maybe you know God but you don’t know me
In a pretty white house with all the trimmings
Jenny baby got ready to be forgiven
Wash away all her sins down at the river
Reverend Billy tried to save her from the Devil
You can’t take the darkness out of some people
You can’t put your will upon a soul
You might find I’m better for a while
After I’m up I’ll only fall

They were forging a lifetime melting spaces
Billy preaching from the pulpit Jenny falling to pieces
Waiting for her chance to up and leave him
Sunday Morning in spring just after Easter
Jenny ran with the money the Church was keeping
She said Honey you just don’t know about me
I’m only gonna cause you grief
Maybe you know God but you don’t know me
You can’t take the darkness out of some people
You can’t put your will upon a soul
You might find I’m better for a while
As sure as I’m up I’ll only fall
she was forging a lifetime wasting spaces
Then Jenny baby got a diamond ring in Vegas

Then I realized it all just comes from my head and it doesn't matter what instrument you play. You can be a virtuoso silver spoon player and not even know it. Just pick up some spoons and give it a try ... more
