Tom Stipe
The Prayin' Kind
Lyrics
It was a fast ball, I was just a kid
and I swung and I missed
I said a bad word, threw the bat in the dust,
I just wanted to quit
And my momma in the stands bowed her head to pray
And everything that came along she handled the same way

Chorus1-
She's Someone's sister someone's mother
Sometimes fighter sometimes lover
She's the voice inside my head like she's standing there
She's the one that taught me Jesus is a friend of mine
She's the prayin' kind

All I remembered was that crashing sound
and those flashing lights
And I heard the doctor say mam
It's gonna take a fight
Before I even knew what was wrong I knew everything would be alright
Cause when I woke up I saw my wife prayin' by my side

Chorus2-
She's someone's sister someone's mother
Sometimes fighter sometimes lover
The voice inside my head like she's standing there
She's the one who reminds me Jesus is a friend of mine
She's the prayin' kind

Bridge

As I tiptoed down the hallway
She didn't know I was standing there
And When I heard that tiny voice say amen
I knew Nothings stronger than a mama's prayer





Chorus 3-

She's Someone's sister someone's mother
Sometimes a fighter sometimes a lover
She's the voice inside my head like she's standing there
She's someone's best friend someone's daughter
She's a believer and I'll always love her
She's the voice inside my heart I can hear her prayers
She's the one who reminds me Jesus is a friend of mine
She's the one I listen for when I need to do what's right
She's the prayin' kind she's the prayin' kind
