A Prayer Wrapped In Blues

A Prayer Wrapped In Blues

Answer to my prayer, Lord, you know, I've prayed so long!
Please answer to my prayer, Lord, you know, I've prayed so long!
I'm tryin' to leave Wisconsin, tryin' to keep it goin' on!
 
I've cried all night, Lord, you know, I sit here by the train.
Yeah, I've cried all night, Lord, you know, I sit here by the train.
I'm whisteling a sad, sad song, I'm howlin' in the rain.
 
I'd like to kiss my woman, I need her burnin' body so,
Oh boy, I'd like to kiss my woman, I need her burnin' body so,
but I'm in f*ckin' Wisconsin, and she stays in Buffalo!
 
My cigarettes are drenched, all the tobacco's wet!
Oh fuck! My cigarettes are drenched, all the tobacco's wet!
And I did lend out my lighter, it was the only one I've had!
 
If I could make it to Detroit, I'd surely see a light,
come on, if I could make it to Detroit, I'd surely see a light,
I could join a rockin' band, playin' the blues with Jack White!
 
I'm drinkin' wine in the curchhouse, and I'm eatin' sacred bread.
Oh, Jesus, I'm drinkin' wine in the curchhouse, and I'm eatin' sacred bread.
I'm always led by the Holy Ghost, he knows how I like to get fed!
 
I'm gettin' on the train, yeah, and I hear my baby's call!
Well, I'm gettin' on the train, yeah, and I hear my baby's call!
I'm drivin' into Paradise, I don't miss hell at all!
 
There's storms on the ocean, there's storms on the mountain, too.
You know, there's storms on the ocean, there's storms on the mountain, too.
Oh Lord, you know, I got no friend but you!

 
 
 
 
 
Song Lyrics, some kinda Delta Blues. The last verse has been taken from a Bob Dylan Song. Bob Dylan took the words from the American Songbook.

Gottes Zelt: Glaubens- und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe



Die Glaubens-und Liebesgedichte von Patrick Rabe sind mutig, innig, streitbar, vertrauens- und humorvoll, sie klammern auch Zweifel, Anfechtungen und Prfungen nicht aus, stellen manchmal gewohnte Glaubensmuster auf den Kopf und erffnen dem Leser den weiten Raum Gottes. Tief und kathartisch sind seine Gedichte von Tod und seelischer Wiederauferstehung, es finden sich Poeme der Suche, des Trostes, der Klage und der Freude. Abgerundet wird das Buch von einigen ungewhnlichen theologischen Betrachtungen. Kein Happy-Clappy-Lobpreis, sondern ein Buch mit Ecken und Kanten, das einen Blick aufs Christentum erffnet, der fern konservativer Traditionen liegt.
