Song Description

Colorful cast of characters that all need grace and forgiveness

Lyrics

Henry holds his bottle like it holds some kind of power,
Hoping it'll wipe his memory clean,
He thinks when he comes to, he'll find the things he knew,
Were only just a good man with bad dreams

Cora cusses like a sailor, drinks just like a pirate,
Her double-barrel smile is painted thin,
She hides behind her lace, and wears a poker face,
Cause she loved a man, but lost her hand all in

I seen them come and go,
I seen them young and old,
But the more that I have seen, the more I know...

Oh the captains and the cowboys
they all need missionaries
for the weapons that they carry are just wounds,
Even the gamblers and their women
need to be forgiven
When the aces that they hold are all offsuit

Davey found adventure in robbing railway cars,
He truly never meant to hurt no one,
But good intentions fail when perfect plans derail,
Now he never sleeps without his gun

I seen them come and go,
I seen them high and low,
But the more that I have seen, the more I know...

Oh the captains and the cowboys
they all need missionaries
for the weapons that they carry are just wounds,
Sometimes the dirtier the theif,
the more they need a priest,
who'll rob them of their pride to start anew
Yeah tonight we're having church in this saloon
