If There's a God Lyrics

by Ry Cooder

Republicans changed the lock on heaven's door
Keys to the kingdom don't fil no more
The poor working man Iike me and you
If we ain't got money we won 'I get through
If there's a God I think He's got to bottle up and go
If there's still a God in heaven He's got to hit that lonesome road

No more Jesus, Mary and Joe
They done passed Heaven Bill 1070
Restricted signs everywhere you go
I think they want to bring back old Jim Crow
If there's a God I think He's got to bottle up and go
If there's a God in heaven He's got to hit that lonesome road

Angel Gabriel said it won't be long
Republiklan is getting strong
Heaven folks are feeling bad
Lose everything we ever had
If you brown you can 't hang around If you black better step way back
If you' re red you' re better off dead
If you poor and white you just ain't right
If there's a God I think He's got to bottle up and go
If there's a God in heaven He's got to hit th at lonesome road
