Passing the Hat
- 66 Views
Look up from the hymnal, look 'round at the faces Of families closing their eyes We're taking Communion and passing the offering hat Around at the same time I reached for the hat and take all the cash And slide it into my ragged coat sleeve And leave in its place a note to explain All of the reasons that stealing has led me to leave If there was a worthy cause for to give to May I be so bold as to say The givers not knowing where their money's going Is as sinful as throwing away Stained glasses shine on my red wine And the sweat of my brow drips to my shaking knees A small sacrifice to benefit one man's journey Away from America's seas Sweet, sweet sigh of relief, sweet, sweet oh Baltic Sea Sweet, sweet sigh of relief, sweet, sweet oh Baltic Sea Sweet, sweet sigh of relief, sweet, sweet oh Baltic Sea Nobody here knows my name Call it right or wrong I bought my ticket just the same
