Dont think that I dont go to Church
simply because you think that I should
nor judge me to be bad
nor think that I'm no good

when I go to church
people judge me by the clothes i wear
they judge me also
by the length of my hair

They talk bad about the preacher
and each other too
i can hear all that at a bar
so what good will it do?

that preacher man on the pulpit
is a sinner worse than me
so why go to church?
no,you can just let me be.

i'll just sit at home
and read the good book here
for going to church might doom my soul
to go to hell I fear.
Bob Mitchum
