Kinky Friedman Shield Of Abraham Lyrics

Last updated: 11/03/2013 06:09:03 AM

Jacob climbed the ladder, climbed it to the sky,
Said, “People, what’s the matter ?
Heaven ain’t so high,
People, Heaven ain’t so high,
When you got the shield,
You got the shield,
You got the shield,
You got the shield of Abraham.”
Little children.

You got the shield,
You got the shield,
You got the shield of Abraham.

The Israelites they wandered in the desert 40 years
And ol’ Moses told the children
“Brush away them tears,
Hey, kids, this ain’t no time for tears.”

Children —
You got the shield,
You got the shield,
You got the shield of Abraham.
Little children.

You got the shield,
You got the shield,
You got the shield of Abraham.

David, he fought Goliath with nothing but a tiny stone.
David, little David, God knows you’re not alone,
God knows you’re not alone.

David, you got the shield,
You’ve got the shield,
You got the shield of Abraham.
Little David.

You got the shield,
You got the shield,
You got the shield of Abraham.

Rock and roll redeemer, oh people, hear my song,
And let the music keep us loving, let the spirit keep us strong,
Let your sweet love keep us strong.

’Cause we’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield of Abraham.
Little children.

We’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield of Abraham.

We’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield of Abraham.
Little children.

We’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield,
We’ve got the shield ...
