about

This is one of those great country and western songs which hits the nail on the head in so many ways both musically and lyrically.
Kate's been singing this song to our lucky friends and family for many years, so it's a real pleasure to finally have recorded this great version to share with everyone who likes The Friday Covers.
Featuring Kate Frith, Vocals, Mark Frith, Acoustic Guitar, Slide Guitar and Backing Vocals, and Steve Hartley on Acoustic Guitar, Organ and Backing Vocals.
Thanks to CH for artwork.
Thankyou kindly friends! xx

lyrics

You say that you're born again, cleansed of your former sins
You want me to say, I'll forgive and forget
But you've done too much to me, don't you be touching me
Go back and touch all those women you've met

God may forgive you but I won't
Yes, Jesus loves you but I don't
They don't have to live with you, neither do I
You say that you're born again, well, so am I
God may forgive you but I won't, I won't even try

The kids used to cry for you, I had to try to do
Things that a Dad should do since you've been gone
You really let us down, you may be Heaven 'bound
But you've made one hell of a mess here at home

God may forgive you but I won't
Yes, Jesus loves you but I don't
They don't have to live with you, neither do I
You say that you're born again, well, so am I
God may forgive you but I won't, I won't even try
