I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
And the preacher said, "You know you always have the Lord by your side"
Twenty red lights in his honor

And I thought by the time I got there she'd be off
Much to my surprise, there she was sittin' in the corner
Was a girl with far away eyes
So if you're down on your luck
Find a girl with far away eyes
And life ain't worth a dime

Ten dollars to the church of the Sacred Bleeding Heart Of Jesus
And next week they'd say my prayer on the radio
So I did, the next week, I got a prayer with a girl

I know you all sympathize
And if you're downright disgusted
Get a girl with far away eyes
So if you're down on your luck
Find a girl with far away eyes
