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

Thereís a church falling down
A church falling down
Sacred secrets spoken out loud
Thereís a church falling down
It ainít right

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

Thereís a church falling down
A church falling down
Something holy thrown down on the ground
Thereís a church falling down
It ainít right

Well, you warned me and I heard you
But I didnít 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

Thereís a church falling down
A church falling down
Abandoned, forsaken, left out in the rain
Thereís a church falling down
It ainít right
