Track Name: Lucille
I can still recall that call telling me to come home
I knew right then that the end wouldn’t be long
So I packed my bags and I got my ass on the first thing headed down the road
Praying to God not to rob this world of Lucille’s soul

I guess the stress of years of pain finally taken its toll
And I suppose none of us know when its our time to go
But I know that time wasn’t on my side when that ride took much too long
Cause all I heard when my feet hit the curb was ‘Lucille’s gone’

Jesus, Joseph, Mary and Moses…even Deacon James
I’ve come today to pray that you save Lucille in our father’s name
The Lord never heard a word as true as what I’m bout to say
Don’t let her die before she wakes and my soul is yours to take

It’s been some years and that’s the last I don seen of the south
Ain’t no reason for keeping Mississippi in my heart now
When my god mama died, I cried but I won’t shed no mo tears
She’s always in my heart, no need to fear

Lord wont you take me away, just so my Lucille can stay
