05 Flying Saucer Jesus.txt

I'm standing in
My backyard
By the old swing set
Been praying you'd stop by
To pick me up
But
hadn't seen you
Yet
I've seen enough now
You were right
I wouldn't blame you
If you didn't come back down
But
you know I'm your pal
And I was hoping you won't ditch me
In this run down town

Flying Saucer Jesus
Don't leave me stranded here
I've packed all my things I need
My Bible
Some pretzels
Even some ice cold beer
Flying Saucer Jesus
Don't leave me stranded
On the ground
I want you to take me up yonder in your silver
Ship
And never bring me down

Maybe I should take a flashlight
I think I've got one in the garage
I can't help feeling a lot like
A broken down sheriff
Gettin out a Dodge
I'll sit down where you can see me
on my old patio chair
I'm sure you'll recognize me
I'm the one with
the thousand mile stare

Flying Saucer Jesus
Don't leave me stranded here
I've packed all my things
I need
My Bible
Some pretzels
Even some ice cold beer
Flying Saucer Jesus
Don't leave me stranded on the ground
I want you to take me up yonder in your silver ship
And never bring me down
I left a note for my family
As if they
Actually would care
Shined my shoes
Paid up my Union dues
Even cut my hair
Got one more thing to ask you
Just before you land
Do you like your beer
In a Chalice
a glass
Or
Just from an
. aluminum can.
Flying Saucer Jesus
Don't leave me stranded here
I've packed all my things I need
My Bible
Some pretzels
Even some ice cold beer
Flying Saucer Jesus
Don't leave me stranded on the ground
I want you to take me up yonder in your silver ship
And never bring me down .
