Track Name: Hellfire and Amazing Grace
HELLFIRE & AMAZING GRACE
By Ethan Crump


Well I’ve been drinkin’ and I still ain’t showered
She said dinner’s in a half an hour
But I think I’ll stay here and cower
‘Cause my woman she’s as cold as ice.

You see, the older she’s gotten, the meaner she gets
Don’t matter what I’ve done, she pitches a fit
But I still love her just like I did
When I asked her to be my wife.

Well she’s the daughter of a farmer, ‘bout as tough as a mule
Always had her pickin’ cotton, never made her go to school
First time I saw her, she said I was a fool
And I was never gonna find me a girl.

Oh, we’re a diamond in a field of clay
You’re light lightnin’ in my rainy day
And I hope you’re smiling when we fade away
Our love’s like hell fire and amazing grace

Well they dammed up the river and they took all the cotton
And the good ole days are long forgotten
And her old man’s liver got rotten
So they laid’em down in his grave

But we had two kids and they’re having their own
And I’ve been rentin’ out mobile homes
My old lady she’s keeping on
Hell, ya know I can’t complain

But she’s talking to her sisters, sittin’ in the kitchen
Thinks I don’t hear her when she keeps on bitchin’
‘Bout all the things that I’ve been missin’
When I go to the grocery store

‘Bout the only time she acts nice to me
Is on Friday afternoon watchin’ Court TV
Lordy, she’s my honey bee
And I’ll love her till I can’t no more

Oh, we’re a diamond in a field of clay
You’re light lightnin’ in my rainy day
And I hope you’re smiling when we fade away
Our love’s like hell fire and amazing grace

No, we ain’t never cared a lot about money
And she don’t ever want nothin’ from me
I guess we’ll clock it out in the country
Hell, I like it here anyhow

So I take her for a ride whenever she’s ready
After she reads the obituary
We take a little trip to the cemetery
And we look at where they’ll lay us down

Oh, we’re a diamond in a field of clay
You’re light lightnin’ in my rainy day
And I hope you’re smiling when we fade away
Our love’s like hell fire and amazing grace
