A Church Falling Down

Lyrics: Fred Tackett
Music: Fred Tackett

One of the new songs on Little Feat's album Rooster Rag.

Loss of the spirit followed loss of the heart
Ashes were scattered and drifted apart
A heart that is lost can never be the same
When love turns to hurt and hurt turns to blame

There�s a church falling down
A church falling down
Sacred secrets spoken out loud
There�s a church falling down
It ain�t right

Sister, mama, lover, little child
I�m so sick and sorry now
Oaths from the altar, memories won
Mysteries and natures coming undone

There�s a church falling down
A church falling down
Something holy thrown down on the ground
There�s a church falling down
It ain�t right

Well, you warned me and I heard you
But I didn�t hear you right
I was wounded and wailing
Lost from the light
The promises and omens
Turned out all the same
When love turned to hurt and
Hurt turned to blame

There�s a church falling down
A church falling down
Abandoned, forsaken, left out in the rain
There�s a church falling down
It ain�t right
