    Reason to Believe

  • Seen a man standin' over a dead dog lyin' by the highway in a ditch
    He's lookin' down kinda puzzled pokin' that dog with a stick
    Got his car door flung open he's standin' out on Highway 31
    Like if he stood there long enough that dog'd get up and run
    Struck me kinda funny seem kinda funny sir to me
    At the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe
    Now Mary Lou loved Johnny with a love mean and true
    She said "Baby I'll work for you every day and bring my money home to you"
    One day he up and left her and ever since that
    She waits down at the end of that dirt road for young Johnny to come back
    Struck me kinda funny seemed kind of funny sir to me
    How at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to believe
    Take a baby to the river Kyle William they called him
    Wash the baby in the water take away little Kyle's sin
    In a whitewash shotgun shack an old man passes away
    Take his body to the graveyard and over him they pray
    Lord won't you tell us tell us what does it mean
    Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to
    believe
    Congregation gathers down by the riverside
    Preacher stands with his Bible groom stands waitin' for his bride
    Congregation gone and the sun sets behind a weepin' willow tree
    Groom stands alone and watches the river rush on so effortlessly
    Lord and he's wonderin' where can his baby be
    Still at the end of every hard earned day people find some reason to
    believe
