Politician Blues

If i was a politician
i’d get down on my knees and pray
If i was a politician
i’d get down on my knees and pray
‘Cause i know i’ll be fryin’ in the fire
When it comes to judgement day

When the good lord made creation
He cracked a smile when he was done
When the good lord made creation
He cracked a smile when he was done
Every plant and every critter-
He laid his hands on every one

Now the preacher in his pulpit
Thinks he’s got the latest word
Now the preacher in his pulpit
Thinks he’s got the latest word
He said the Lord was sittin’ in the wrong pew
When he made that fungi and the herb

Now, you can’t better God’s perfection
‘Cause you think you found a flaw
You can’t change a fact of nature
Just because you pass a law
Put all the potheads in the hoosegow
While the judge is gettin’ juiced
How long’s it gonna be
Before the chicken’s come home to roost

Well the white boys go to college
And they smoke that grass all day
Well the white boys go to college
And they smoke that grass all day
While the black boys go to prison
“Cause the feds are gonna make ‘em pay

If i was a politician
I’d curse the day that i was born
If i was a politician
I’d curse the day that i was born
‘Cause I know I’ll be dancin’ with the devil
When old Gabriel blows his horn
