Joey & Rory - A Bible And A Belt Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • They were both made of leather, both black and frayed and worn.
  • I was brought up to respect them since the day that I was born.
  • One came here from England; it's been handed down for years.
  • The other one was ordered from a catalog at Sears.
  • One my mamma read to me till I was well into my teens.
  • I thought all the other one was for was to hold up daddy's jeans.
  • Till I told a lie and learned it had another purpose too.
  • Out behind the she'd my daddy said, "This'll hurt me more than you."
  • Cause one had my daddy's name on it, the other said King James.
  • With love they taught us lessons but we feared them both the same.
  • One led us to heaven and the other left a welt (hurt like hell)
  • Those were the days when kids were raised with a bible and a belt.
  • I remember when I was twelve I stole a dime store comic book.
  • How Mamma read where the scriptures said to take back what I took.
  • When I refused my daddy grabbed my arm and said, 'Come on'
  • I needed more, he knew, than just Matthew, Mark and Luke and John.
  • Well sometimes they made me cry, sometimes they made me fightin' mad
  • And I wished I'd been raised without them like some other children had
  • But now I'm grown with kids of my own and I know just how they felt
  • You know it seems to me what the world still needs is a bible and a belt.
  • Cause one had my daddy's name on it, the other said King James.
  • With love they taught us lessons but we feared them both the same.
  • One led us to heaven and the other hurt like hell
  • Those were the days when kids were raised with a bible and a belt.
  • A bible and a belt.
