Counting Sheep

v1.

I’m just that good ol’ preacher man’s son

And they laughed at me when I was young

Well I’m not that same ol’ boy that you knew back then

Won’t close my mouth, won’t do what they said

 

Chorus:

And When those hell hounds start a chasing me

And I can’t get no sleep

Looking the devil in the eye while I’m counting sheep

That ol’ preacher man can’t save you or cause you to be

Just look the devil in the eye and go to sleep

 

v2.

I don’t want your silver and I don’t want your gold

Just love your fellow man and cherish your own soul

I don’t need your heaven and I sure don’t need your hell

To be a better man, I just found myself

 

Chorus:

And When those hell hounds start a chasing me

And I can’t get no sleep

Looking the devil in the eye while I’m counting sheep

That ol’ preacher man can’t save you or cause you to be

Just look the devil in the eye and go to sleep

 

Bridge:

I’ve been running all my life on borrowed time from nursery rhymes

Still I just can’t seem to find my peace of mind

 

Chorus:

And When those hell hounds start a chasing me

And I can’t get no sleep

Looking the devil in the eye while I’m counting sheep

That ol’ preacher man can’t save you or cause you to be

Just look the devil in the eye and go to sleep
