Back Pew

INTRO
VERSE
Rings his hands slouches low—doesn’t want anyone to know he’s there
Next to him is a tattooed man—covered ever’ where except his hands
But who cares
Both searching for an answer—never thought they’d find one here
Sometimes when life’s a question
What it takes is a little prayer

CHORUS
The best seat ain’t always in the front
Sittin’ close to the preacher ain’t close enough
It’s all about who you are not what you do
Everybody hits a little rough patch
Gets lost and has to crawl their way back
The pieces of life tend to come unglued
But love still reaches you
Even in the back pew------Amen

VERSE
Where I was sent when I misbehaved
'Cause this house is no place to play-they say
Takes a while to understand but—I could easily be those men
Some day
We all fight different battles—even though we’re designed the same
Where we sit really doesn’t matter
It’s where we stand at the end of the day

REPEAT CHORUS

(INSTRUMENTAL)

BRIDGE
From the pulpit to the corner of the street
Doors are always open—mercy never sleeps

REPEAT CHORUS (Breakdown on first 3 lines)

TAG Yeah, love still reaches you—even in the back pew, uh-huh
Even in the back pew
Especially in the back pew

Outro (Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing plays)
