Amen Lyrics – Terry Bennetts

Amen

I never heard Dad say, a bad word about anyone
Though he would have had good cause down through the years
And when a hammer stroke wasn’t sure, was about the only time he swore
A sober man who enjoyed a nice cold beer

Born a man to the land, with a willing helping hand
His neighbour’s knew who they could all turn to.
When a tractor wouldn’t start, ‘needed help in their stockyards
Then the billy’s on the boil when their working day is through

Little schooling did he have, still he was raised a Christin lad
His folks taught him right from wrong in their own way
But life back then was hard, there never seemed to be enough
So Sunday was always just another working day

Amen Amen, his God was there beside him on the land
Amen Amen, he didn’t need to go to church to be a Christian man

Did God look the other way, just because he didn’t pray
No I don’t believe that’s the measure of this man
For when came his judgement day, I don’t believe he was turned away
He’s with St Peter and the billy’s on the boil again

Amen Amen, his God was there beside him on the land
Amen Amen, he didn’t need to go to church to be a Christian man
