Whiskey Sour in Five Points

 

Church bells ringing, heed their grace

and the long, long road takes its turn

So drink your whiskey and let it burn

Church bells ringing, heed their grace

 

And the long, long road takes its turn

Shout your prayer against the night

Wrap your soul around what’s right

and the long, long road takes its turn

 

Shout your prayer against the night

Can’t keep what’s coming long at bay

But down the whiskey, come what may

Shout your prayer against the night

 

Can’t keep what’s coming long at bay

Church bells ringing, heed their grace

Their final knell, last curve and chase

Can’t keep what’s coming long at bay

 

Church bells ringing, heed their grace

and the long, long road takes its turn

So drink your whiskey and let it burn

Church bells ringing, heed their grace

 

 

The Prompt: Write a Spiritual. It can be as short as four lines, more if you’re inspired. It should deal in pain and bewilderment, doubt and unfulfilled longing.
