Corb Lund - Bible On The Dash Lyrics

A two night stand in Tulsa pullin out an headed west
Freddie grabbed the Gideons from the hotel in the desk, I said what's the matter brother are you worried for your soul?
He said better safe than sorry boys, thats just how I role
We hit the road a feelin cool as Crosby, Stills and Nash overflowin with the spirit an a bible on the dash
Well we pulled the whole thing over for the flashin reds and blues
The police come to the window and we said Have you heard the news?
He said dont get smart with me boy, why you doin 95?
my foot is heavy with redemption, Im just blessed to be alive!
He said I oughtta pull you out a there an beat you black and blue
I placed my hand upon the good book an said what would Jesus do?
Its better than insurance, registration or lyin
Its better than these fake IDs I have to keep buyin
Its even better than an envelope stuffed with cash
They always said itd save me, that old bible on the da-ash
Well round these parts that hair alonell make probable cause
If youre movin through my county, youll obey my earthly laws
Well we did our best to quote some holy red chapter or verse
what kinda music you boys makin?
we said Christian music sir!
well he thought about it, contemplated, twirled his cop moustache
alright yall be careful now, just dont drive quite so fast

Its better than insurance, registration or lyin
Its better than these fake IDs I keep on buyin
Its even better than an envelope stuffed with cash
They always said itd save me, that old bible on the da-ash
&.
Well crossin at the border a few months later we heard FREEZE
Pull in over there son, we gonna do some search and seize.
Maybe if wed been more famous hed a said just move along
If hed a seen us on the TV, if hed heard our single songs
Well hes just about to ask us wheres the money guns and hash
Well Is prayin it would save me, that ol bible on the dash
His hand was on his pistol, his dog was on his leash
An that shepard he was a keeping a pretty close eye on the sheep
We got a list were gonna look at, see if we cant find your names
We got parabolic laser beams hears everything you say
We got ultraviolet x-rays that can see right through your bus
Yes sir well I hope the good lord keeps an eye on all of us, yup
Its better than a green card, its better than lyin
Its better than these work visas I keep on buyin
Its better than an envelope stuffed with cash
Lord Im at the border with a bible on the da-ash
