Rosanne Cash – World Of Strange Design lyrics
[Verse:]
Well you're not from around here
You're probably not our kind
It's hot from March to Christmas
And other things you'll find

[Verse:]
Won't fit your old ideas
Their line is shifting sands,
You walk across a ghostly bridge
To a crumbling promise land

[Chorus:]
If Jesus came from Mississippi
If tears began to rise
I guess I'll start at the beginning
The world of strange design

[Verse:]
Well I'd like to have the ocean
But I'd settle for the rain
Humbly as for true love
There was such a price to pay

[Verse:]
This room was filled with trouble
And sacraments deceived
And I'm with you, we're in the shade
Of his weeping willow tree

[Chorus:]
If Jesus came from Mississippi
If tears began to rise
I'll have to go back to the beginning
In this world of strange design

[Verse:]
We talk about your drinking
But not about your thirst
You set off through the mine field
Like you were round in first

[Verse:]
So open up their window
And hand the baby through
Point up towards the ghostly bridge
And she'll know what to do

[Chorus:]
If Jesus came from Mississippi
If tears began to rise
They'll have to go back to the beginning
In this world of strange design
