When Love Was A King - lyrics

When pain didn't reign and love was king
We could wash our hand of most anything
But i inherited my father's sin
I was born and raised in the midst of it
Before a preacher spoke those words in red
And holy men would bow their heads
Before I was the man I am
The oldest son of Abraham
The day I drowned in fire and stone
I found out what I'd always known
I still remember, I still see
A heart that trusts, and a voice that sings
When pain didn't reign and love was king
My daddy was a gambler, a drinking man
He showed his love with the back of his hand
I never saw him smile, not a flicker of grace
Think he buried em with mamma in the Tennessee clay
The day I drowned in fire and stone
I found out what I'd always known
I still remember, I still see
A heart that trusts, and a voice that sings
When pain didn't reign and love was king
The day I drowned in fire and stone
I found out what I'd always known
But I still remember, I still see
A heart that trusts, and a voice that sings
When pain didn't reign and love was king
A heart that trusts, and a voice that sings
Like when pain didn't reign and love was king
