Greatest Story Ever Told Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Moses come ridin' up on a quasar
His spurs were jingling, the door was ajar
His buckle was silver, his manner was bold
And I asked him to come in out of the cold
Verse 2
His brain was boiling, his reason was spent
His motto is nothing is borrowed, nothing is lent
He ask me for mercy, I gave him a gun
He said these things just got to be done
Verse 3
Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence
You'd get right to work if you had any sense
You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench
Verse 4
Gideon come up with his eyes on the floor
Said "you ain't got a hinge, you can't close the door"
Moses stood up above his six foot and ten
Said "you can't close the door when the wall's caved in"
Verse 5
Ask him for water, he poured me some wine
We finished the bottle and broke into mine
You get what you come for, ya ready to go
Well, it's one in ten thousand that come for the show
Verse 6
Abraham and Isaac diggin' on a well
Mama came quick with the water witch spell
Well cool clear water well you can't ever tell
Verse 7
Abraham and Isaac sitting on a fence
You'd get right to work if you had any sense
You know the one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench
