I was born in the thirsty earth
Showed up in Tucson, fresh out of Leavenworth
Did my time on stale bread and dirty water
Nobody told me that lady was the preacher's daughter

Yeah, how her armsll hold me
(Tonight)
When we kissed she never told me
Ill be the lamb for a slaughter
Cause she's my preacher's daughter

Got loose from my incarceration
I paid a visit to her Daddy's congregation
"Welcome home", she said, "You're lookin' good too
Meet my new husband, he's the sheriff who arrested you"

Yeah, how her armsll hold me
(Tonight)
When we kissed, she never told me
Ill be the lamb for a slaughter
Cause she's my preacher's daughter, yeah

So I said my congratulations
Before I lost myself to my infatuation
I stole a kiss or two just havin' fun again
Sheriff don't like it, now I'm back on the run again

How her armsll hold me
(Tonight)
When we kissed, she never told me
Ill be the lamb for a slaughter
Like the desert needs the water
Give me back my preacher's daughter

Preacher's daughter
Preacher's daughter
Preacher's daughter
Yeah
