Private Abraham

Private Abraham

Hanging out down on Pease
Looking for a bite to eat
I saw a face I used to know
Driving by in a minivan
I tried to flag her down
But she wouldn’t turn around
I guess she had someplace to go
She used to be my Abraham

Chorus:
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
To the promised land

I read this magazine
Some guy did a groovy thing
Rode a camel cross the desert
Fathered three different religions
I want to go to church
Kneel down right there beside her
Put on a tie and a clean shirt
Say my prayers and be forgiven

Chorus:
Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
To the promised land

Bridge:
Take me back to Canaan
Back to the promised land
Take me back to Canaan
Be my private Abraham

Chorus: Take me back
Take me back
Take me back
To the promised land
