Forgive Me Father (Far From Finished)

Forgive me father for I've sinned It's been 3 whole days since my last glass of gin The ones that I old dear say it's getting to my head If I can't have me liquor lord I might as well be dead Forgive me father for I fear I've gone all wrong I slept beside many a dame and never once returned I've raised my hands in anger and put down my fellow man And I fear no penance I could receive could save me from the damned Can you help me father for I'm falling My heart is weary and I'm beginning to feel faint He smiled and he looked into my eyes And he said son, you ain't nothing but a tortured saint Forgive me father for I know not what I do 'Ya see I left home when I was just fifteen Never had the guidance of a loving father Just bar flies and whores, no brother to bother
