Lyrics
The good Lord must have heard my prayers, because He packed up and disappeared
He took the praise and extravagant odes, and He left the sting I've been dying to know
Someone should give that old devil his due
He taught me how to love only you
I know I owe my good fortune to Him

Because He pulled me out of the trance that faith had put me in

I've been blessed with a broken heart since the day I was born
Cleansed in the water, the sons and the daughters, stripped of the sins we're destined for
I've been blessed with a broken heart since the day I've been reborn
Down in the water, the sons and the daughters, the kind of death worth living for

The Good Stranger has seen me grieve
He saw the crooked old heart on my sleeve
He took the note I had handwritten and said "Only sinners become better men"
Someone should give that old devil his due
He taught me how to love only you
I owe the love of my woman to him

Because He took her out of the grave that faith put her in

I've been blessed with a broken heart since the day I was born
Cleansed in the water, the sons and the daughters, stripped of the sins we're destined for
I've been blessed with a broken heart since the day I've been reborn
Down in the water, the sons and the daughters, the kind of death worth living for

I can't live without the blues
I can't love without the blues
I can't sleep without the blues
The devil will take his pay so we're alright

Because He pulled me out the trance that faith had put me in

I've been blessed with a broken heart since the day I was born
Cleansed in the water, the sons and the daughters, stripped of the sins we're destined for
I've been blessed with a broken heart since the day I've been reborn
Down in the water, the sons and the daughters, the kind of death worth living for
