God Willin’

God Willin’ – an original, psychedelic, art rock tune by Magus (Kevin Trent Boswell)

God Willin’

Devil jump on ya
When you least expect it
With blood lust in his eyes

But you’ll pull through
Like you always do…
God willin’ and the creek don’t rise

Tax man poundin’ hard on your door
Taking everything your money implies

Without turning to crime,
You’ll survive on a dime…
God willin’ and the creek don’t rise

Shacked up for love, but it didn’t work out
Ain’t it painful when the love all dies?

But you’ll get off the street
And find someone sweet…
God willin’ and the creek don’t rise

Until the Lord himself
Knocks you off your feet
You keep on swingin’
And you can’t be beat
God willin’

Screaming Boss Man Jack,
‘bout to break your back
All your time out the window flies

You just smile and pick up his slack
Because one day you’ll get him back…
God willin’ and the creek don’t rise

The rivers can flood
And the levies break
But you know you gonna do
Whatever it takes
God willin’

To pay your bills, you need a little scratch
So you borrow from Frankie
But there’s just one catch:
Frankie is one of them connected type guys

The juice is steep but you better not renege
Less’n you want ol’ Frank to break your leg
But you just know you’ll pay it off…
God willin’ and the creek don’t rise

Drowning sorrows, feelin’ bereft
You done lost a friend
And didn’t have but one left
And now that joker’s runnin’ around town,
Spreading rumors and lies

Such a double crossin’ can’t happen twice
Because after all, most folks is nice;
At least that is…
God willin’ and the creek don’t rise

Show ‘em a whole army
Can’t ring your bell
The devils, cheats and liars
They can all go to hell
God willin’
