If I'd Only Seen You Coming

If I'd only seen you coming

I would've turned you back around

Grabbed my favorite pair of work boots

Kicked your ass right out of town

Sent you sailing into Tuesday

You wouldn't know what's up or down

You'd be looking for a conscience

In the local lost and found

 

If I'd only seen you coming

I’d a done a whole lot more

Grab the gris gris said a hoodoo

Sent you packing out the door

All the way into next Tuesday 

You wouldn't know what's up or down

You'd be looking for salvation

In the local lost and found

 

If I'd known that you was coming

I'd take the crosses off the wall

Hang up all the friendly prophets

Line em up and down the hall

Find some bread and Holy pudding

Get some water for the wine

Try to find a couple of good books

Have ourselves a righteous time

 

If I'd only seen you coming

I would have run the other way

Pull the shades and turn the lights out 

Cause i got nothing left to say 

I'd go sailing to next Tuesday 

Don't look back and won't slow down

I'll be looking for my conscience

In the local lost and found
