Lyrics

Preacher
© JCT and Joseph Bonnell SOCAN

On the day I was born
The preacher said to me
Now you’re getting older
What do you want to be?
Now you’re getting older
What do you want to be?

I just want to be free
I just want to be free

The preacher told my Momma
The preacher told my Papa
Cry if you want to
Lie if you want to
Your boy’s got a Gypsy soul
He’s born to rock and roll
Your boy’s got a Gypsy soul

Gypsy Soul

I said Preacher, Preacher
(Baa baa black sheep)
I said Preacher, Preacher
(Have you any wolves?)
Take these chains off of me
(Ashes, ashes)
Take these chains off of me
(and we all fall down)

Preacher told my Momma
Preacher told my Papa
Pray if you want to
Say it if you want to
Your boy’s got a Gypsy soul
He’s born to rock and roll
Your boy’s got a Gypsy soul

Bridge and oohs etc

Angels
Thirst for power and gold will blind your soul
Son please come home while there’s still time


Stumbling down to the gallows
The preacher holds the key
There's a raven on your shoulder son,
It’s time to shake it free
It’s time to make a choice son, so what’s it gonna be?
It's too late for me
I'm just too worldly to see
(Living by the sword)

Hey!
Preacher told my Momma
Preacher told my Papa
Cry if you want to
Lie if you want to
Your boy’s got a Gypsy soul
He’s born to rock and roll
Your boy’s got a Gypsy soul

I said Preacher, Preacher
Won’t you save my soul
