alexthomasdavis – Reaper Man lyrics

I'm a reaper man I travel through all lands
I'm a reaper man I'll cut you where you stand
I'm a reaper man are you rock or sand
I'm a reaper man give me your souls hand
Give me your hand your hand again
I'll cut you loose women or men
It doesn't matter where or when
I'll join you up with the good lord again
Give me your soul your soul again
Now that you're free you can drop your pen
No more work from now til then
Lift yourself up your heaven sent

    So this is about the Reaper Man! Theres a school of thought that believes your soul is attatched to your body when you are born or conceived, and then cut again when you die. Someones got to do the cutting..I'll join you up with the good lord again! :)
