Two Cow Garage – This Little Light Lyrics

I heard they found that boy
In a dumpster in the alley
With a bullet hole in his head
What a sad, grim finale
And people said they’d pray for him
And his poor family
And all I could think
Was that your prayers don’t mean anything at all
They came up from behind me
As I was sliding my money
Through the bulletproof glass
Of the gas station next to the hotel
He had a tattooo under his right eye
That said “f*ck the world”
And I wasn’t in a position to disagree
So this little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Those two boys from Houston scared the shit out of me
In that gas station parking lot, down on my knees
With that gun against my mind
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
I’m gonna let it shine
Now there’s a woman at the bus stop
By the plasma donation spot
She has a marriage license in her right hand
A bloody bandage on her arm
She’s crying to a telephone
She just needs someone to take her home
Well everyone’s got a story you know
We just never know where to start
So this little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Those two boys from Houston scared the shit out of me
In that gas station parking lot, down on my knees
With that gun against my mind
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
They called me a faggot and a freak
As I sat there on my knees
And I was too scared to speak
But I’m not scared anymore
And I’d rather die in that parking lot
Than ever feel that helpless again
Those two boys from Houston scared the shit out of me
In that gas station parking lot, down on my knees
With that gun against my mind
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
Those two boys in Houston scared the shit out of me
In that gas station parking lot, down on my knees
With that gun against my mind
This little light of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
They called me a faggot and a freak
As I sat there on my knees
And I was too scared to speak
But I’m not scared anymore
And I’d rather die in that parking lot
Than ever feel that helpless again
