Econoline - Mobile

mobile got churches
like new orleans got bars
like the highway got troopers
like the night sky got stars
they got more fish
on the the fenders of cars
than in the gulf of mexico
and the trailer park cowboy
with the voice of an angel
sings about jesus
and going to jail
it's enough to make
a god fearing man
of the last atheist in alabama
mobile got churches
like new Orleans got bars

mobile got churches
like new Orleans got whores
pretty white spires
closed doors
you might Jesus
walkin off of gulf shores
like he did in galilee
all the daughters
are in bible class
learning to fend off
their uncle's advances
praying for Jesus
to come kick his ass
come the day of last judgment
mobile got churches
like new Orleans got whores

come on in
come meet the folks
a good christian family
and i mean broke
in thirty five years
we ain't hardly spoke more than pray
mobile got churches
but that's all it's got
nothing but churches
and vacant lots
maybe i'll miss it
maybe not
'cause i'm moving to new Orleans
mobile got churches
like new Orleans got bars...
