Iris Dement – God May Forgive You (But I Won't) lyrics

You say that you're born again
Cleansed of your former sins
You want me to say "I forgive and forget"
But you've done too much to me
Don't you be touching me,
Go back and touch all those women you've made

Chorus:
'cause God may forgive you, but I won't
Yes, Jesus loves you, but I don't
They don't have to live with you and neither do I
You say that you're born again, well so am I
God may forgive you, but I won't
And I won't even try

Well, the kids had to cry for you
I had to try to do
Things that the Dad should do
Since you've been gone
Well, you really let us down
You may be Heaven 'bound
But you've left one hell of a mess here at home

[Chorus:]

And I won't even try
