lyrics

She sits beneath the sycamore tree
In the silence of the leaves
While the house of God grieves 
 
She couldn’t grieve there anymore
Couldn’t grieve there anymore
She threw her bible in the river 
On the third day of the war
 
The preacher came 
And her doorbell he rang
She just let it ring
What words could he bring
 
She couldn’t hear it anymore
Couldn’t hear it anymore 
She threw her bible in the river 
On the third day of the war
 
The politicians voice
Came on the radio
Where we fight God will go
We’ll stand against the foe
 
She couldn’t stand it anymore
Couldn’t stand it anymore
Them all standing next to Jesus
While the kids hit the floor
 
Way out on the side 
Of the old Bristol Hill
A thousand graves to fill
And the sycamores are still
 
There’s no reason anymore
There’s no reason anymore
She threw her bible in the river 
On the third day of the war
