Aaron Watson - The Prayer Lyrics




My mountain is a mole hill, my throne's a busted chair
This crown has turned to rust and it's all tangled in my hair
This high horse that I ride on is gonna buckle at the knee
Upon my castle made of sand I cannot be the king of me

There's the man in white, his words are painted red
There's power in his blood and only truth in what is said
There's the man in black with a needle in his vein
Lying flat upon his back this is the prayer that he once prayed

He said, my mountain is a mole hill, my throne's a busted chair
This crown has turned to rust and it's all tangled in my hair
This high horse that I ride on is gonna buckle at the knee
Upon my castle made of sand I cannot be the king of me

And this harem in my heart is filled with pot metal and fools gold
Once your statue turns to dirt all that's left in the end is your soul
God save your soul

So he said shout out of control with all your heart and soul
Though this cold world may tear you apart
Let the whole world know

My mountain is a mole hill, my throne's a busted chair
This crown has turned to rust and it's all tangled in my hair
This high horse that I ride on is gonna buckle at the knee
Upon my castle made of sand I cannot be the king of me

My mountain is a mole hill, my throne's a busted chair
This crown has turned to rust and it's all tangled in my hair
This high horse that I ride on is gonna buckle at the knee
Upon my castle made of sand I cannot be the king of me

Lord, I am just a man
I cannot be the king of me

  37. Colton Blumhagen

    Love the song, beginning kind of reminds me of "Turn The Page" for some reason.

    POGwhore

    OMG I never thought of that but it so does remind me of that

  38. Matthew Osorio

    This reminds me of Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt"! I love it!

  39. clodhopper

    The other day when I wrote my comment, I told my wife that it reminded me of a Johnny Cash song.  I just read where this song written by Aaron was inspired by a book he read on Johnny Cash, and how Johnny's  faith saved his life from all his addictions. 

    Amazing.

  40. clodhopper

    Very powerful song!

  41. Jasen Collins

    Awesome  Cowboy Music!

  42. cary allen

    Can't stop listening. Love it.

  44. Eric Graham

    Awesome song, lyrics are so true in many ways. Keep on doing great things Sir!

  45. Tatanka Wyoming

    Awesome !!!!!

  46. Derek Mager

    Why is this not as popular or well known as it should be?

    Lleyton West

    He's popular and has songs on the radio

    jsrrrmg

    @Derek Mager They don't want songs like this.. they want ones like "Girl Crush" so they can fit in with main stream Pop music.

    noah rodriguez

    @jsrrrmg seriously how tf is girl crush up there? Its so pitiful....

    jsrrrmg

    LOL.. That is the same reaction I have to today's music. One of the great things about living in the information age, is that we are not stuck with what the Main Stream companies want to force on us.

    Dustin Dampier

    the word's not out. i listen to country and just found this guy

  47. Adam Vanek

    Good song

  48. Brandon Williams

    Great song... just as good as George Strait
