Josh Ritter – Peter Killed The Dragon lyrics
Peter killed the dragon
And he did it with his bare hands
Peter killed the dragon
And he did it with his bare hands
Paul killed the dragon
And he did it with his bare hands

Eight miles high
Saw you wearing a royal blue shirt
Eight miles high
Saw you wearing a royal blue shirt
Hiding in a hole in the blue
From the world of hurt

Well Mississippi mighty
Oh, and it’s eight miles wide
Mississippi mighty
Oh, and it’s eight miles wide
Standing on the edge
I saw your face from the other side

And even on the phone
You’re eight hours from my time
Even on the phone
You’re eight hours from my time
Wish I could hold you in my arms
Like I hold you in my mind

'Cause I’m standing on the rooftops
Wondering if it’s true
I’m looking over rooftops
Hoping that it ain’t true

God can give or take away
Well, who would make such an awful rule?
God can give or take away
Well, who would make such an awful rule?

Well Peter killed the dragon
And he did it with his bare hands
Peter killed the dragon
And he did it with his bare hands
Paul killed the dragon
And he did it with his bare hands
