Bible Belt (feat. Little Feat)

Well, he was the assistant preacher and a Sunday School teacher in the church that I grew up in.
She was a looker from Atlanta; led the choir; played piano; had a body that was made for sin.
She didn't care he was married 'cause the torch that she carried was hotter than the fires of Hell.
She had plans to seduce him, and she knew she would loosen a notch in the Bible Belt.

So she called him up at home when she knew he'd be alone, said, "Preacher, I could use advice."
"I got troubles with the Man that I know you'll understand. If you could help me it would sure be nice."
They met a few minutes after in the office of the pastor, and she started telling how she felt.
What a chance they were takin' when they first started breakin' the law from the Bible Belt.

There's a lot of good people who were led astray that believe what the Good Book said.
Well, I'll tell you something, brother, when you're dealin' with the Devil it's tough to keep a level head.
And, it's hard to imagine how the flames of passion will burn 'til your soul will melt.
And it'll spread like a cancer 'cause you're gonna have to answer to the Lord in the Bible Belt.


Someone said they went to Vegas. Back home it didn't take us long to hear the news of what they did.
I just can't believe that he left his wife to grieve alone with two pre-school kids.
I don't know how they're doin', but I know that they're screwin' up a good thing they once had.
They better get their heads together or they're gonna slap leather with the Lord in the Bible Belt.

Amen, brother.
