about

A song about friends living together in a house literally situated on the corner of Church and State streets with grace and faith in common.

lyrics

Church and State

There’s a house down where Church meets State
The oak on the corner stands proud
Tucked inside of those old four walls
Are the best friends that I have now

Out in her pink rocking chair, “A” is wise
She stomps her boots to the rhythms that we make
We listen to her wisdom unwind
As she ages like a deep red wine

“M” went out to a nation in need
She gave her hands to the work of good out there
Her heart is stout, her temper is short, but
You won’t find one like her just anywhere

So we sing ooooooo
Lord bless that old house

“G”s got a songbird wrapped in her heart
With a story that she may never tell
How she fell in love with a boy form the bar
And their love saved his soul from the depths of hell

So we sing ooooooo
Lord bless that old house

There’s a house down where Church meets State
The oak on the corner stands proud
Tucked inside of those old four walls
Are the best friends that I have now
