Thieves And Villains – South St. Hymnal lyrics

I see his father now from time to time
He wears a smile but you can't undress the sadness from those eyes,
He haunts a drink and wants something to believe.
He says, "God took everything, everything from me."

And all the good is gone
Been lonesome for so long
And I can't hear the choir singing now
Just those chains I drag along.

And I breathed my life into this child,
He was young, he was brilliant, bright, and wild
I was a fool to think I'd ever see the day he'd become a better man than me,
And carry on my name.

And all the good is gone
Been lonesome for so long
I can't hear that choir singing now
Just those chains I drag along.

Hallelujah,
Hallelujah,
I've been down this road before
And my heart, it took a toll.

When all the good is gone,
Been lonesome for so long
And I can't hear that choir singing now
Just those chains I drag along.

Hallelujah,
Hallelujah,
I walked down, this road alone
When this town, it felt like home.
