30. Little Tin God

Don Henley. Sorry, no youtube, just lyrics.

"A new age is dawning
On fewer than expected
Business as usual"
Thatís how the headline read
Some shaky modern saviors
Have now been resurrected
In all this excitement
You may have been misled
People want a miracle
They say "oh lord, canít you see us?
Weíre tryiní to make a liviní down here
And keep the children fed"
But, from little dark motel rooms
To "six flags over jesus"
"how are the mighty fallen"
So the bible said
You donít have to pray to a little tin god
Step out of the way for a little tin god
You might fear the reaper, you might fear the rod
But you never have to get down on your knees
You donít have to holler, "please, please"
No, you never have to get down on your knees
For a little tin god
The cowboyís name was "jingo"
And he knew that there was trouble
So in a blaze of glory
He rode out of the west
No one was ever certain
What it was that he was sayiní
But they loved it when he told them
They were better than the rest
But you donít have to pray for a little tin god
Step out of the way for a little tin god
You might hate to system, hate the job
But you never have to get down on your knees
You donít have to holler, "please, please"
No, you never have to get down on your knees
For a little tin god
Throw down a rope from heaven
And lead the flock to water
The man in the middle would have you think
That you have no other choice
But to wander in the wilderness
Of all the upturned faces
If you stop and listen long enough
You will hear your own small voice
But you donít have to pray to a little tin god
Step out of the way for a little tin god
You might fear the reaper, fear the rod
But you never have to get down on your knees
You donít have to holler, "please, please"
No, you never have to get down on your knees
You donít have to holler, "please, please"
You never have to get down on your knees
For a little tin god
