about

Written in November 2005 as a response to Nashville church-going invitations.

lyrics

You might think
if you ask me just what it is I do
That I might say
“If I explain, would it be understood
What I do isn’t what I am,
and what is it to you?”

But you should know
I would never say a thing like that
Oh yeah you know
I would never say a thing like that

You might think
if you ask me just where I go to church
That I might say
“What if I don’t, and what gives you the nerve?
If there’s really a God up there,
Let’s leave it up to her”

[repeat chorus]

You could read me like a book
Turn my pages over
If you’ll only take a look
You’ll see past my cover

You might think
if you ask me just who I voted for
That I might say
“Am I living in another civil war?
or a place where the people
can be free to roll their own?”

[repeat chorus]

If you ask me who I am
I will say my name
If you ask me what I am
I won’t say a thing

You might think
if you ask me just where it is I stand
That I might say
“Well, if I said, would I be where I am?
Everyone can do what they like
and I don’t give a damn”

[repeat chorus]
