Songs For Sinners
(K. Brewer)

My love's been drinkin'
She does not know me
We courted years ago
She bore my child
Tonight she's telling me
I'm not the man she cares for
My love's been drinkin'
She's in denial

But we'll all lay together
Beneath the bloomin' heather
For worse or for better, friend or foe,
So then while the sun's still shinin'
Let's raise a cup o' kindness
And sing our songs for sinners here below

My mates are drinkin'
They cannot hear me
I'm talking louder than
A newlywed
But they're just laughin'
And pointing at me
My mates are drinkin'
They're off their heads

But we'll all lay together
Beneath the bloomin' heather
For worse or for better, friend or foe,
So then while the sun's still shinin'
Let's raise our cup o' kindness
And sing our songs for sinners here below

The counselor's drinkin'
He cannot comprehend
He's analyzin' and placin' fault
On all my plunderin' and my carousin'
The counselor's drinkin'
Ain't worth his salt

The crowd's been drinkin'
They're swayin' with me
With every too-ra-loo
They're singin' strong
And we are one tonight
No hand is clenched to fight
The crowd is drinkin'
And I am home

And we'll all lay together
Beneath the bloomin' heather
For worse or for better, friend or foe,
So then while the sun's still shinin'
Let's raise our cup o' kindness
And sing our songs for sinners here below

And we'll all lay together
Beneath the bloomin' heather
For worse or for better when we go,
So then while the sun's still shinin'
On earth as in divinin'
We'll sing our songs for sinners here below.
