Dark Preacher
Lyrics
Full moon o'er the desert
Cold wind whistlin' by
From distant speck to man in black
As time trickles by

Pale as a cadaver
And skinny as a twig
Six-five tall he's stridin' on
In the service of his king

He wears his hat low 'cross his face
But his sharp eyes pierce the brim
You can feel him stare right though you
Like you was paper-thin

His eyes say fire and brimstone
And his words like thunder roll
He ain't gonna stop at nothin'
'Til the demons leave your soul

Dark Preacher
Fearless, strong and true
Dark Preacher
Look out evil....he's comin' after you

Hard as the Rock of Ages
Truer than he rain
Stands courageous as a lion
To free sinners from their chains

He fuels his incantations
From the fire within his soul
With cold determination
Casts demons back to Hell

His weapon is his Bible
God's earth his battleground
And his enemy is Satan
Tonight in this cow town

The Lord's Prayer is his slingshot
His six-shooter made of faith
His ammunition his belief
To victory or death

Dark Preacher
Fearless, strong and true
Dark Preacher
Look out evil....he's comin' after you

Some say he killed a hundred men
'Fore Jesus set him free
When his bible was a pistol
Hangin' noose his Calvary

Some say faith kept him walkin'
With a belly full of lead
Some say only him and Christ
Was risen from the dead

Others say he walked the earth
'Fore Noah and the Flood
An' I heard tell he feasts on werewolf
Drinks vampire's blood

Now, one thing I can say is
If he looks into your soul
There's one damned thing for certain
He'll shake you to the bones

Dark Preacher
Fearless, strong and true
Dark Preacher
Look out evil....he's comin' after you

Now I gone done some bad things
Wake up sweatin' from my sleep
When in those cursed nightmares
The Devil comes to reap

When I come from the shadows
I'll be ready to repent
'Coz that preacher scares me more
Than all the demons Hell has sent

Dark Preacher
His truth will set you free
Dark Preacher
Say a prayer.....looks like he's comin' after me.
