Lyrics



I don’t know where I’m going, but I know where I been
I got to keep moving, you know the road never ends
My daddy keeps praying, my mama she cries
Don’t you know that the preachers daughter got a long way to ride

I was taught that the devil would come take my soul
If I didn’t do just what my mama she told me
But that was a long time ago, now I’m grown
Don’t you know that the preacher’s daughter ran a long way from home

Now I know that Jesus taught love and peace
Like Buddha and Gandhi and Mohamed believed
And I want to love you, please, baby please
Can’t you see that the preacher’s daughter’s getting down on her knees

Whenever I go back, go back to the fold
Mama says that she loves me, and she prays for my soul
I say mama don’t worry, but she disapproves
Don’t you know that the preacher’s daughter got a long way to go

I was taught that the devil would come take my soul
If I didn’t do just what my mama she told me
But that was a long time ago, now I’m grown
Don’t you know that the preacher’s daughter ran a long way from home
